In celebration of Peter Sagan, cycling's rock and roll frontman

As the three-time world champion is set to call time on his career in the WorldTour at the end of 2023, we thought we would take a look back at the glory days

“There’s not pressure anymore about whether I win or lose,” said Peter Sagan, as he announced to the world from San Juan in Argentina that 2023 would be his last season on the road. He is now getting ready to bring the curtain down on what has been a magnificent career in the WorldTour. 

Stepping back from the top level on the road with his team, TotalEnergies, will enable the Slovakian to target one final race, the mountain bike event at the Paris Olympics to wrap up his career on two wheels, something which he explained is all about the “enjoyment” and not about yet another accolade, an Olympic mountain bike gold medal.

“I always said I would like to finish my career on the mountain bike, because I started my career on the mountain bike,” Sagan said. “It gives me some pleasure at the end of my career because I’m doing something I really enjoy.”
