Peter is an interesting character both on and off the road. We are covering quite a lot photos and stories on our website (will be adding more), but there are occasions where photos just don't cut it. So here are some of the videos you hopefully will enjoy. Either you can just sit back, watch and admire Peter's amazing talents or you can have a good laugh at what's he has been up to.
After crossing the finish (not at all contesting the stage win), he performed a "No Hands Wheelie". Yes, a no-hands-wheelie. You have probably seen a wheelie performed with a trial or a bmx, or a one-hand-wheelie with a road bike, but this is a no-hands-wheelie with a road bike and just performed after a 199km-long Tour de France stage!
This is so far (as of 01 April 2013), the most popular Peter Sagan movie on Youtube with 357,955 views.
Tour of Flanders 2013: From the start of the 2013 classics season, only 2 names appeared on top of everyone else: Peter Sagan and Fabian Cancellara. For the first cobbled monument (Tour of Flanders), the top 2 favorites were again Peter and Fabian. The race was indeed decided between the two on the final ascents of Oude Kwaremont and Paterberg. Peter couldn't hold Fabian's wheel on Paterberg and once Spartacus was clear, he knew what he had to do, TT to the finish line. Everyone knows once he has a gap of 100m, it is not much possible to catch him solo.
This is exactly what happened on Sunday. Sagan couldn't catch Fabian and he teamed up with Roelandts. The duo still wasn't strong enough and Fabian crossed the finish line on his own. Peter won the sprint for second.
On the podium, while the podium girls were kissing Fabian congratulating his victory, Peter decided to pinch one of the girl's bottom. He later told the media that it was meant to be a joke, but this was found inappropriate by the majority of the public. Several hours after the race Peter tweeted: "Was not my intention to disrespect women today on the podium. Just a joke, sorry if someone was disturbed about it." One day later this time he issued a video apology. Above you may watch this video.
Maya Leye (podium girl in this incident) tweeted the following later on: "What happened on Sunday was wrong. I hope this never happens again. But I'm sure it won't...excuses accepted @petosagan #flanders". It seems the truce has been made.
Youngest Peter Sagan Fan: Baby is Chanting - 04 April 2013: Look at this baby, he is chanting "Peter Sagan" as he watches Peter race on TV. Wow! The race is probably the Tour of Flanders 2013.
Peter Sagan gives flowers to Maya Leye and apologizes in person - 10 April 2013: Following the podium incident Peter caused at Tour of Flanders, the next time the podium girl Maya Leye and Peter Sagan will meet was going to be at De Brabantse Pijl - La Flèche Brabançonne.
Before the start of the race, Peter brought a nice bouquet of flowers with him and gave them to Maya who was already on the stage. Peter apologized in person and Maya seemed to be happy with the final outcome!
