Racing might have come to an abrupt halt because of the coronavirus pandemic, but former world champion Peter Sagan showed that he is still training for whenever competition might resume.

The talented bike handler demonstrated his impressive core strength by doing several squats while balancing on a fitball, sending well wishes to his fans in a video posted to Twitter.

"I'm here at home and I hope you're healthy and safe at home. I need to do something to be prepared for the next time we see each other. Stay home and enjoy the moment with your closest ones," Sagan says before donning a gladiator mask and performing his core exercise.

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.
