Video: Peter Sagan Shows How Pros Get Bikes on Roof Racks


Matt J - 06/24/13 - 9:11am

This is actually Peter Sagan.

Greg - 06/24/13 - 9:11am

As awesome as it would be to see Carl Sagan ride a bike onto a roof I think you mean Peter.

Rob - 06/24/13 - 9:11am

Carl Sagan could explain the physics of this for sure, but I’m pretty sure Peter Sagan is the one riding the bicycle here…

Carl Sagan…haha…

turtlehead - 06/24/13 - 9:13am

CARL Sagan???????

Nick - 06/24/13 - 9:14am

Yeah, you mean Peter Sagan guys!

bike_master - 06/24/13 - 9:15am

Carl is actually Pete’s dad…

Ryan - 06/24/13 - 9:24am

I would love to be able to do that; imagine the look one strangers’ faces.

Dang, you all are quick. Yep, seems our head was in the stars this morning. Headline fixed, but we’re not sure about his hood.

must be nice to not give a flying Fark

Psi Squared - 06/24/13 - 10:56am

There’s no doubt that Carl would have thought Peter shined more brilliantly than typical main sequence stars.

I’m sure Cannondale loves watching this video so close to the start of the tour. If (if vid is even real) injured, he better heal up quick.

More impressive than riding up the hood is sticking the landing on the dismount from the roof.

Colin - 06/24/13 - 5:02pm

I’m really sad no one has mentioned butt pinching yet…

Alan - 06/24/13 - 5:44pm

I feel like there must have been some sort of ramp at the front of the car. He doesn’t really lift the rear wheel up and that’s a pretty good height to just run right into.

Yetiman - 06/24/13 - 7:38pm

He was a mountain biker.

Area looks like it is in Bratislava (SVK). Is it?

PROEDGEBIKER.COM - 06/30/13 - 10:29am

I Agree with Alan but all & all great vid.

ibike365 - 07/01/13 - 11:32am

Bike he’s riding has some GPS unit on the bars. The one on the roof race does not. As cool a vid as it is, I’m calling shenanigans!

Zach Overholt - 07/01/13 - 11:46am

If you look closely at 35 seconds, the GPS is still there. Anything is possible right?
