Sagan had to leave the Tour de France in July due to a knee injury. The Slovak had surgery on the knee and was unable to participate in the Olympic Games in Tokyo. Sagan is in his final year at Bora-hansgrohe. He makes the switch to the French team Team TotalEnergies and is in a team in the Benelux Tour with Wilco Kelderman, among others.
Mathieu van der Poel is not present. Van der Poel cannot defend his title due to persistent back problems. His team reported that at the moment there is no reason to put a line through the World Cup on the road and Paris-Roubaix. But his physical condition will have to improve quickly in order to play a significant role there.
