Video: Park your bike like a pro 2... Peter Sagan takes the quickest route to the roof rack

Cannondale star shows off some top bike handling skills... and how to jump off a car roof too

Light as today's road bikes may be, it can be a bit of an effort to lift them up onto the roof rack at the end of a ride, so here's Cannondale star Peter Sagan showing how to get one safely stowed without getting out of the saddle.

The video, which should probably come with a 'don't try this at home (or out in the woods)' type warning, is the second in recent months to show one of last year's Tour de France jersey winners showing some expert bike parking skills - remember Bradley Wiggins' perfectly executed bike toss at the Giro del Trentino?

So we're now looking forward to seeing King of the Mountains winner Thomas Voeckler and last year's best young rider, Tejay van Garderen, share their cycle parking secrets...
