Peter Sagan, as you may know, likes a muscle car – well, which twentysomething multimillionaire competing in an adrenalin-fuelled sport wouldn’t?
But when Specialized, bike sponsor of the world champion’s Bora-Hansgrohe team, gave him the latest version of its Diverge adventure bike and film crew, it probably didn’t expect that the Slovak would stick it on top of a car and start doing donuts.
Sagan’s car-handling skills are up there with his ability to handle a bike, it seems – and it’s far from the first time we’ve featured him having fun with a motor, remember when he hopped on top of one a few years back?
