Older elite athletes?

Does anyone know of any elite athletes who got a late start on their sport? In particular cyclists? (but really any sport)

Just wondering if anyone knows of any elite athletes who got a later start on their sports. Particularly interested in cyclists. Also, anyone know anything about elite athletic competitions for older athletes in general (let's say, mid thirties-fifties)? I feel like I read an article in the newspaper within the last couple of months about a middle aged woman runner who was winning a bunch of upper level competitions geared towards older people. Sounded like something I'd like to learn more about.
I'm in my mid twenties (okay, veering towards late twenties at this point) and only in the past few years have I become interested in sports. Just looking for some inspiration to keep me motivated . . .
