Peter Sagan apologizes to Maya, and in general, to women, and all of the cycling fans with a video, over his Tour of Flanders podium pinch.

Sagan did apologize shortly after the podium ceremony via his Twitter account (@petosagan) saying: “Was not my intention to disrespect women today on the podium. Just a joke, sorry if someone was disturbed about it.”

Peter Sagan apologies to Maya Leye for the Tour of Flanders podium incident

Sagan says:

I sincerely apologize to Maya for what I did on the podium yesterday after the race.

Because, it was wrong of me, and I wasn’t thinking what I was doing when I was on the podium.

I never should have done it.

I’m so sorry and I hope that Maya and anyone else I have offended knows how sorry I am and accept my apology.

I promise to act more respectfully in the future.

Maya Leye (the podium girl in this incident) just tweeted the following:

“What happened on Sunday was wrong. I hope this never happens again. But I’m sure it won’t…excuses accepted @petosagan #flanders”.
