Ilya (“Fabulous Cancellara”)
Ilya – our very own “Fabulous Cancellara”. He only knows 2 speeds – stop and go. Everything is a time trial to Ilya and you’ll almost always find him at the head of (or way out in front of) the peloton. To try to keep pace with Ilya can be a recipe for pain and suffering, but he does give a good lead out in any sprint.
Don’t give him any grief on the bike though – he is a keen proponent of the martial arts, and when not on the bike, is training hard in that sport.
His most recent bike adventure/achievement – 140km Alpine Classic, with 2 climbs of Tawonga Gap and an ascent of Mt Buffalo.
