Beking Monaco: A Spectacular Day of Cycling Excellence Culminates in Peter Sagan’s Final Triumph

The Beking Monaco event is a celebration of cycling involving professionals, amateurs and families. It concluded this weekend in grandiose fashion at Port Hercule. This year’s edition marked a defining moment in cycling history drawing together more than three of the world’s greatest cyclists with over 50 Tour de France stage victories between them, united on one podium! It also united cycling enthusiasts for a great charitable cause.

Cycling stars like Tadej Pogacar, Mark Cavendish, Primoz Roglic, and Peter Sagan headlined the event. The day’s program featured mixed team competitions, interactive sessions for children with cycling stars, and the adrenaline-pumping professional race on a thrilling 1.3 km urban track set along Monaco streets.

The pinnacle of this remarkable day was witnessing the legendary Peter Sagan triumph in what would be his final professional road cycling race. The Slovak sensation, often regarded as the “rock star” of cycling, delivered an awe-inspiring performance, outshining his counterparts Tadej Pogacar (winner of two Tours de France) and Mark Cavendish (perhaps the world’s greatest sprinter). This victory not only solidified Peter’s place in cycling history but also marked the end of an era for the iconic cyclist.

Sagan’s career boasts a record seven Green Jerseys at the Tour de France, three consecutive world championships, and prestigious victories in races like the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix. Peter Sagan’s final victory at Beking Monaco added yet another chapter to his legacy.

As the event concluded, the spotlight shifted to Sagan’s future. At 33 years old, the Slovak cycling maestro is transitioning his career, joining the RRK Group – Pierre Baguette – Benzinol continental team, guided by his brother Juraj. Sagan now sets his sights on a new challenge—representing his nation in mountain biking at the 2024 Paris Olympics.

The broader impact of sports in contributing to society

The charitable side of Beking Monaco resonated strongly as the event continued its tradition of supporting noble causes. The event has raised funds for the Fondation Princesse Charléne De Monaco and Fight Aids Monaco, emphasizing the broader impact of sports in contributing to society.

The 3rd edition of Beking Monaco also provided a platform for young enthusiasts to be inspired by their idols and learn the joys of cycling in a safe environment. The combination of sport, charity, and a shared passion for cycling made this year’s Beking Monaco a truly unforgettable spectacle.
