Peter Sagan will begin a new chapter Friday when he debuts in his new team colors at Tour des Alps Maritimes et du Var in France.

Team officials at TotalEnergies confirmed Sagan, who saw his season debut delayed by a case of COVID-19, will line up at the three-day French race to mark his 2022 debut.

The race will be his first race appearance in the French team kit following his high–profile transfer as well as start a new chapter in the superstar’s career.

After a few rough seasons marked by injury and illness, all eyes will be on Sagan and whether or not he can return to his best in the classics and at the big dates such as the Tour de France, where he used to be unchallenged in the green points jersey competition.
