Here are 5 of the most interesting pro cyclists that have transferred into the sport from other disciplines. They include;
Primož Roglič, a Slovenian rider on team LottoNL-Jumbo, who was Junior World Champion Ski Jumper at only 16. He already has a few World Tour stage wins and a Silver Worlds medal under his belt too.
Michael Woods from Cannondale-Drapac started his athletic career as a runner. Due to injury, he transferred to pro cycling in 2013 and is already a proven climber.
Canadian Clara Hughes took up cycling alongside speed skating in her teen years. With an impressive number of titles to her name, she's certainly not a one-trick pony.
Rebecca Romera is just the second woman in history to win Summer Olympic medals in two different disciplines, starting her athletic career in rowing. She made the move to track cycling, winning an Olympic Gold in 2008 in the individual pursuit.
Kiwi Hamish Bond has no less than 8 World Titles in rowing and took the courageous decision to split from the most successful pairing in NZ rowing to pursue a career in cycling. He's a Time Trial specialist and has some pretty big goals - we look forward to seeing what he's capable of.
