Fear in Spain for Peter Sagan atinternational event in Valencia: the heart rate exceeds 200 beats per minute, something that has never happened before in the Slovakian's career given that it has always hovered around 190 beats.

His technician, Patxi Vila, decides to examine the data and immediately recommend an inspection. Peter Sagan immediately turns to Dr. Roberto Corsetti, a cardiologist, who he has known since he was a new professional at Liquigas. An Italian excellence with its B&B Medical Center in Imola.

The recorded data are then analysed: cardio and pedal power, with a subsequent series of clinical and instrumental checks. There is also room for a maximal exercise test on the cycle ergometer, repeated several times. All to see how the heart reacts. And here's the surprise: the values ​​clearly indicate the sudden onset of tachycardia episodes. All at high levels of effort and high ventricular response.

Hence the decision to intervene with an operation at the Lancisi university hospital in Ancona, where he will be subjected to a heart ablation, an invasive operation, to verify the electrical impulses, in the cardiology and arrhythmology department directed by Professor Antonio Dello Russo with the presence of Dr. Corsetti himself. It does not seem that this operation could compromise Peter's competitive future, but we await more details. Come on Peter!


Sagan is fine.

[email protected] I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
