Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) is one of the most popular riders in the professional peloton. He not only wins with panache in bunch sprints and spring Classics, but he also has the personality that endears him to fans across the world.

Whether it's wheelie-ing over the finish line after a tough mountain stage, or re-enacting one of his favourite movies after winning a sprint, the Slovakian takes the time to entertain, not just focusing on watts and riding his bike optimally at all times.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
