The road world champion rambles through the countryside performing epic feats of strength in this video riffing on his Tour de France training regimen – By Molly Hurford
How did Peter Sagan get fit enough to win Stage 2 of this year’s Tour de France? By channeling Rocky Balboa, apparently. The road world champ outdid himself in this hilarious new video from his sponsor Sunroot, sharing his extreme training regimen through a montage Stallone himself would be proud of.
Narrated by a present-day Sagan, the rider recalls his childhood dream—to be the world’s best—against a knockoff ‘Eye of the Tiger’ audio backdrop. We could describe him running through fields while carrying logs, scrambling up cliffsides, and splitting firewood—all performed in an Eastern European-style biker getup complete with a fur hat—but we’re too busy replaying scenes of him pumping out more push-ups and pull-ups than the rest of the pro peloton has done in decades.
Immerse yourself in this weirdly inspirational epic here—you’ll definitely want to watch all the way to end.
