Video: Sagan returns to mountain bike racing - finishes on foot

It was the road world champion’s first mountain bike race for seven years

Peter Sagan’s first mountain bike race for seven years has ended in something of an anticlimax. Despite his famed bike handling skills, the Slovak crashed during the off-road race in Graz, Austria, damaging his bike in the process. The Slovak Spectator reports that he suffered minor injuries and was reduced to walking to the finish line.

Announcing his return to a discipline in which he was junior world champion in 2008, Sagan said: “It’s going to be good fun returning to my roots, racing mountain bikes again and I look forward to seeing what shape I will be in at those races.”

He doesn’t give the impression of having hugely enjoyed the experience from what we see in the video below.

Sagan is to compete in another mountain bike race in the Czech town of Teplice on April 30 before heading to the United States for next month’s Tour of California.

Alex has written for more cricket publications than the rest of the team combined. Despite the apparent evidence of this picture, he doesn't especially like cake.
