Peter Sagan’s guardian angel?

July 4, 2012

Peter Sagan (Liquigas-Cannondale) wins stage 2 of the 2012 Amgen Tour of California

Parts 1 and 2 of “Guess who: pro-cyclist tattoo tales” indicated the answers to which rider wears which tattoo would be revealed in a part 3 of “tattoo tales.”

In light of Peter Sagan’s second Tour de France stage win today — according to The Guardian no first-time TDF competitor has won two stages since 1977 — he deserves special attention.

Sagan is the owner of tattoo #9, angel on a bike, drawn on his left bicep.

Perhaps it represents his guardian angel who helped him remain upright on the bike when others would have eaten asphalt while attempting a tripod when cornering at time trial speed during a TDF prologue?

Look forward to the next time he raises his arms in a victory salute to see if the camera captures his angel.

  1. Forget the tiny skid in the prologue… How about when he rolled his tubular in the last turn at the 2011 paris nice?

    • Russell, thanks for sharing this fine Peter Sagan moment. Maybe he didn’t have the tattoo then (she says, with fingers crossed)?

  2. Yay, I got one right! 🙂

  3. Peter Sagan’s tattoo is a temporary tattoo and it is promoting Cyclofemme (I believe the tattoos are available on their website at The logo was designed my Language Department in NYC.
