Description

Peter Sagan, at just 28 years of age, is already one of cycling's greatest riders of all time. With four Tour de France points jersey victories, three road race world championships, the 2018 Paris-Roubaix, and multiple spring classics among Sagan's palmares, the world of cycling agrees that this intense, yet fun-loving rider is among the most dominant and fun-to-watch riders of his generation.

In My World, for the very first time, bike racing fans will have the opportunity to glimpse behind the scenes of Sagan's cycling life, revealing the full extent of his dedication to competition and determination to win. They will read about his relationship with fellow riders, his heroes, and how he copes with the expectation of success. He will share technical details about his preparation, dissect the art of the sprint and analyze the tactics that play out during a fiercely competitive stage or race.

Sagan also gets personal, inviting us into his entourage as he blasts through races--then blows off steam with a few well-played pranks on friends. He shares his love for stunts like popping uphill wheelies on his road bike or lip syncing to John Travolta--and explains why bets lost and promises to friends sometimes end with a chicken dance across the finish line.

If the rainbow jersey comes with a curse, what happens when you win three? Meet the real Peter Sagan in My World and find out why cycling's most interesting personality never takes winning too seriously.
