Slovak cyclist and three-time world champion in road cycling, Peter Sagan, released his autobiography My World on December 5.

His fans, who also call him a “Tourminator”, can read about his views on cycling and his fellow cyclists but also what motivates and inspires him.

“If a hundred cyclists stand at the starting line of the race, they will live through a hundred different stories on the track,” Sagan wrote in his autobiography. “My story is about how I wore the UCI’s rainbow jersey for three consecutive years.”

The book maps the cyclist’s path to professional cycling, but it predominantly revolves around his lifetime success when he managed to win the 2015 UCI Road World Championships in Richmond.

Moreover, Sagan repeated the victory in 2016, and the year after, becoming a triple World Champion.

Sagan reveals the details of his journey to victory and opens up about his failures as well. The cyclist explains why he was actually disqualified in the 2017 Tour de France.

The English copy of Sagan’s book was released in October.
