Dave Worsley talks with Ian Talbot - a young cyclist from Christchurch who won the Under 23 Title yesterday.
It's pretty unexpected and still blows my mind.
Only 12 months ago Ian was just working in a cyclist shop and is now competing against huge names... even managed to win the race!
He says he felt he had a knack for it, and wanted to challenge and dedicate himself.
It's not been easy, with Ian explaining a lot of hard work went into it over the last year, including having an accident with a vehicle, sickness, and hardship.
What does Ian think about it all now?
It's all paid off.
