After hoovering up an amuse-bouche of Haribo in the video linked below that we featured yesterday, Peter Sagan has cooked up an altogether healthier main course in a video for one of the two title sponsors of the double road world champion’s Bora-Hansgrohe team.
We say cooked up, but as far as we can tell, the only actual heat involved here, wasabi paste aside, is boiling a pan of water for quinoa to stand in.
Don’t tell the manufacturer of pricey cooktop extractors – that’s hobs with fans, in layman’s terms – this, but that’s something we usually employ a kettle and measuring jug to achieve.
Sagan was rustling up quinoa makis with avocado and tuna, displaying some decent sushi chef skills on the way – assuming, that is, there wasn’t some Len Deighton standing in for Michael Caine as Harry Palmer in The Ipcress File sleight of hand going on.
Still, he displays some fine dexterity with the chopsticks …
Back to his day job, and next on the menu for Sagan is a trifecta of Italian races – Strade Bianche, Tirreno-Adriatico and Milan-San Remo – following an hors d’oeuvre of a weekend to Classics season that saw him follow Saturday’s second place at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad with victory at Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne.
