Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) wins stage 2 at the Tour de France

After being disqualified from last year's Tour de France on only the fourth stage, Peter Sagan was back winning again at the world's biggest bike race on Sunday. What better way to celebrate than to own Cyclingnews Films' own celebration (opens in new tab) of the iconic one-day races Paris-Roubaix – won by Sagan this year – and the Tour of Flanders for the very special price of $2.49 (£1.87)?

The Slovakian Bora-Hansgrohe rider might have thought his opportunity to lead this year's Grande Boucle had passed him by after he was beaten by Quick-Step Floors' fast-finishing Colombian sprinter Fernando Gaviria on stage 1 on Saturday, but as Sagan crossed the finish line to win the second stage at La-Roche-sur-Yon and take the yellow jersey, the roar he let out showed roadside fans that he knew exactly what he'd achieved.

That celebration was remarkably similar to the one Sagan made after winning the cobbled one-day Classic Paris-Roubaix in April, and the similarities don't end there: wearing his iconic rainbow jersey denoting him as the road race world champion on both occasions, Sagan has created his own unique image as one of the most celebrated, and well-liked, bike riders in the world.

His ability to win on a variety of terrains and throughout the season, from the biting cold of northern France and Belgium to the somewhat sunnier climes of Australia, California and the Mediterranean meccas of France, Spain and Italy, has drawn comparisons to Eddy Merckx. And if you can't be there on the roadside to watch what could be another masterclass from Sagan on the cobbles of stage 9 at this year's Tour, then why not head to Belgium or northern France to re-live HOLY WEEK for yourself at next year's Flanders or Roubaix?

Follow exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the eve of the Tour of Flanders all the way through to the day of Sagan's victory in Roubaix, with fantastic footage of Sagan, Greg Van Avermaet, Niki Terpstra and their loyal teammates during one of professional cycling's most important, and enjoyable, weeks of the year.

Purchase HOLY WEEK (opens in new tab) from Cyclingnews Films (opens in new tab) on Vimeo (opens in new tab) for just $2.49. You can still download our Giro d'Italia film, CRESCENDO, right here (opens in new tab).

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
