Peter Sagan can do it all – he is one of the world’s most powerful and skilled bike riders, a sprinter and is also considered to be one of the cycling’s greatest talents. This claim is proved by the list of his major wins: 7 stage wins Tour de France, 5 points competition Tour de France, 2015 Tour of California, 2015 road race world champion, 2016 road race world champion, and 2016 Tour of Flanders.
He is a Slovakian professional road-bicycle racer for UCI WorldTeam Bora-Hansgrohe. He started as a mountain bike racer and in 2008, before moving to road racing won the Junior Mountain Bike World Championship.
On September 24th this year, Sagan won the World Championship for the third consecutive year at the World Road Race Championships in Norwegian Bergen and became the first cyclist to win three gold medals at the World Championship in a row!
Bratislava’s own motto of “Accessibility-Innovation-Execution” should also be the motto for the whole country and for every aspect. Slovaks surely are an amazing nation, successful in all fields one can imagine. Their pride and happiness reflected on their champion Peter Sagan surely gave the Slovaks a worldwide popularity and some hope to host some cycling events as, for example, “Gran Fondo”. Slovaks are ready, what about the World?
While considering to organise the race in the Slovak Republic, let us keep in mind that those are the people who actually go from words to actions. From the innovation to execution. From hopes, dreams, and hard work – to the realisation and winning. Cycling from the World – a race to Slovakia!
