"Gobsmackingly Brilliant" rides of 2000
Best individual performance of any rider in any grade: Jeremy Yates, New Zealander in Junior World Race, ranked last, no team-mates, finished World Champion.
The best result of 2000 has to be that of New Zealand school boy Jeremy
Yates winning the world junior road race, riding alone without any team
mates, seeded 170th, on a very ordinary bike, the campaign financed
almost entirely by his family.
