The TAB's Mark Stafford sits down with some of New Zealand's most prolific and successful sports personalities to find out what makes them tick. This week the man behind the mic is cycling legend Julian Dean.

While Julian competed for 14 years at the highest level in his sport, his story is not widely known in New Zealand. He tells Staf about riding with Lance Armstrong, getting shot during the Tour de France and shares more stories from his time in the saddle.
