"It's very nice weather and the people are friendly, the fitness center is really great. I sit in the sauna every day and drink coffee in the lovely bar. It is like a second honeymoon."

Do not be surprised if you suddenly observe Peter Sagan sipping a cup of coffee in a Belgian café. The world champion is in Belgium to prepare for the 2016 season and was interviewed by Sporza, speaing out on a number of issues.

 

 

"I'm here on vacation," Peter Sagan said. "It's very nice weather and the people are friendly, the fitness center is really great. I sit in the sauna every day and drink coffee in the lovely bar. It is like a second honeymoon.

 

"No, I'm here to prepare my season. I have a problem with my leg (which means that he he loses strength in the final of a race, ed)," admitted Sagan who will be treated in Oostduinkerke by Peter Lagrou, doctor at Saxo-Tinkoff.
 

Two weeks ago Sagan got married with Katarina Smolkova. "From my friends I received a special gift," Sagan said proudly. The world champion then took his smartphone to show a picture of an ostrich. "Our family now has four members (the fourth member is the dog Charlie, ed.)"

 

"The world championships in Richmond has so far definitely been the best moment of my career. Finally, I felt that I had taken a special victory. I had lost that feeling a bit.

 

"Next year I want to win classics, Tour stages, the green jersey, the Worlds, the Olympics ... Haha no, I am just kidding, that's impossible. But the more events you attend, the more you can win."

 

Just after Sagan won the world title, he was congratulated by Boonen and a long string of colleagues. "That was really great. I think something it was unseen in the world of cycling," said Sagan.

 

Especially the comments fromTom Boonen impressed the Slovakian. "When I followed races on TV, I was a big fan of Boonen and Ullrich. But all the riders are special and have their own story."

 

When he showed his new world champion's kit, Sagan got a lot of criticism due to his decision to wear white shorts. "Do not panic, I have asked the UCI for permission to wear black shorts under my white rainbow jersey," the world champion said.
