Praise for Peter Sagan"Sagan is one of the biggest stars in cycling right now because he's incredibly talented, not to mention affable and fun. . . . If you were having a party, you would want him there because he would sing karaoke. While doing a one-handed wheelie. On a picnic table." -- New York Times"If cycling's new era has a spirit animal, it is Peter Sagan. Sagan is undeniably the coolest thing going in the pro field. He's a hero for the post-modern age, at once a throwback and disruptor, someone who can break the mold while simultaneously paying tribute to the versatility of past legends." -- VeloNews"Second Coming of the Cannibal? You'll never get him to admit it, but Peter Sagan just might be the Eddy Merckx of his generation--only with better victory celebrations. Indeed, Sagan is a genetic freak the likes of which the sport has not seen in decades, if ever. During Sagan's first three years in the pro ranks, he's outsprinted sprinters, out-climbed climbers, and excelled at just about everything in between." --Bicycling "He is a shining light for cycling right now; a star with seemingly limitless ability and box office appeal. As Usain Bolt was for athletics, so Sagan is for his sport." --Daily TelegraphPraise for Peter Sagan's My WorldShortlisted for the Telegraph 2019 Cycling Book of the Year"Peter Sagan's My World is a fun read about a great athlete. Self-deprecating as well as analytical, it lets us into Team Peter and the world of pro cycling as seen through the highly observant eyes of its most idiosyncratic practitioner. Why so serious indeed?" -- PezCycling News
