It was back in May 2015 when Jim Cusick told us about the professional jockey who was riding time trials.

Young Radomir has been a runner up in the Worlds at both Junior and U23 levels but has had the misfortune to be a round at the same time as his countryman Zdenek Stybar – one of the most gifted cyclocross performers in the sport’s history.
