The 2023 calendar hadn’t even flipped to February and already the sporting world had two GOAT’s announcing that they were moving on. One was Tom Brady, famous for throwing a football around. The other was Slovakian star Peter Sagan who broke the news that after a 14 year road career he was planning to step away from the tarmac to instead return to mountain bike racing (where he won his first rainbow jersey) in the run-up to the 2024 Paris Olympics.
So, if in fact Peter does a better job staying true to his word than Tom did when he briefly “retired” last year, this will be the last year we see the smile, high-jinx and winning ways from one of the world’s most popular riders. To that end, we decided to start highlighting some of our favorite Peter Sagan moments from over the years…starting with the day we joined him for his first-ever foray at an AMA Supercross back in 2013 at the season opener at Anaheim Stadium.
