PELE, Muhammad Ali, Michael Schumacher, Carl Lewis, Jack Nicklaus, Roger Federer, Michael Phelps, Don Bradman, Lance Armstrong, Michael Jordan and Jonah Lomu - just a short list of exceptional sportsmen that have made it to the top in their individual fields.

“My dad used to race bikes so when I was really young I had a bike bought for me,” said Hodgson. “I used to ride around the local fields. I started racing schoolboy motocross from being eight until 15 and then, after breaking my leg, I started doing road racing.”..more
