UCI Road World Championships 2017
Peter Sagan reigns supreme once again. The 27-year-old cyclist for Bora–Hansgrohe won his third consecutive UCI Road World Championship title on 24 September in Bergen, Norway, making him the first rider in history to do so. While Peter didn’t stand out specifically throughout the race, it was in the final sprint where he made his mark and pushed ahead to beat Alexander Kristoff by a quarter of a wheel.
This result will no doubt be a relief to the Slovakian rider, who had a disappointing Tour de France campaign when he was disqualified after crashing into Mark Cavendish at the finish line of the fourth stage.
Peter dedicated his medal to the late Michele Scarponi, who died earlier this year during a training ride.
