When cyclists enter a period of rest during the season, it doesn't usually mean that they sit around with their feet up and watch endless boxsets.

Peter Sagan, for example, took some time off the bike after the Tour of California by indulging in some pretty hardcore pastimes in Utah, heading to the Mecca of extreme sports - Park City.

Along with his brother Juraj, Sagan took to two wheels by mountain biking through the trails, hooked himself up to a zipline across a gorge and even had a go at bobsleigh at the Utah Olympic Park.

Sagan won the sprint classification jersey at the Tour of California, taking victory in stages one and four to bring his tally at the race to fifteen.

The Slovakian rider next heads to the Tour de Suisse, where he just needs one more stage win to break Hugo Koblet and Ferdi Kübler's record of 11.
