Peter Sagan undergoes heart procedure after experiencing ‘tachycardic episode’

February 24, 2024

Peter Sagan underwent an ablation procedure at a hospital in Ancona, Italy, after his heart rate exceeded 200 bpm during a race near Valencia last weekend.

Further tests were carried out on Sagan earlier this week which revealed he had experienced episodes of tachycardia during extreme exercise. An ablation, which is a procedure in which excess body tissue is removed, is expected to enable him to resume training and competition after a period of recovery. Cycling Weekly
