At just 28-years-old, three-time world champion Peter Sagan has already left a considerable impact on professional cycling. One of the peloton’s most recognizable and marketable stars, the Slovakian has a palmarès that already rivals many of cycling’s greats and includes three world championship rainbow jerseys. A fun-loving rider, Sagan is a fan favourite entertaining on and off the bike. Sagan’s latest project has been a memoir which will be available in Canada this December. Titled My World, the book will explore Sagan’s competitive cycling career.
“In My World, for the very first time, bike racing fans will have the opportunity to glimpse behind the scenes of Sagan’s cycling life, revealing the full extent of his dedication to competition and determination to win. They will read about his relationship with fellow riders, his heroes and how he copes with the expectation of success. He will share technical details about his preparation, dissect the art of the sprint and analyze the tactics that play out during a fiercely competitive stage or race,” reads the VeloPress summary of My World.
The book will be separated into three sections titled Richmond, Qatar and Bergen to correspond with the 2015, 2016 and 2017 world championships where he won the road race titles. Each part of the book is separated into the four seasons of the year; winter, spring, summer and autumn. The final section of the book is titled Epilogue to the 2018 Season.
The memoir will be released in North America on December 5 and be available in print and e-book editions in bookstores, bike shops and online. To pre-order the book visit velopress.com/books/my-world/.
