As an Olympic champion, it’s an honour for me to become a Champion for Peace. My career as a professional cyclist has enabled me to adapt to the values of my host homes since 1997- France and Monaco. As Manager of the Astana Team and as a Peace and Sport Champion for Peace, I want to highlight the essential values of human respect, solidarity, sport and peace n my team as well as n all the countries that I visit.
