The multi-talent Peter Sagan now turns his skills to baking cookies. After an eventful season as a professional bike racer caped by winning his third consecutive world championship title, Sagan became a father this fall, was deemed not at fault for the crash during the finale of Stage 4 of the Tour de France, supported a global effort to promote cycling in cities alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, did the splits at training camp in Mallorca, and how turns his attention to the holidays and baking cookies.

To celebrate the coming holiday season, Sagan got in front of the cameras once again to bake some gingerbread cookies. Armed with an ugly sweater, a Santa hat and a pair of his 100% glasses, Sagan makes quick work of the recipe.

Though we don’t know the specific ratios it appears the recipe is pretty standard. The dry ingredients are flour, baking powder, cinnamon, sugar and nutmeg. A wet mix is also made with butter, molasses, more sugar and an egg. The two mixes are then blended together in a KitchenAid.

The gingerbread cookies are topped off with world championships stripes to mimic those of the Slovak. The video finishes with Sagan taking a bite of a cookie before doing a wheelie out of the frame as Season’s Greetings flashes across the screen. We don’t know how many of these Sagan was allowed to eat considering he’s already building for the 2018 Tour Down Under which begins in a mere 30 days.
