Pro on bike from 1914 vs amateur on 2015 bike

Can a hundred years of cycling innovation and invention help an amateur beat a pro at one of the toughest climbs in the Peak District?

JLT Condor p/b Mavic rider Kristian House is not only a former British road race champion, but he has also won the best climber's jersey in the Tour of Britain.

He faced 5 live Bespoke presenter OJ Borg — most definitely an amateur — while riding a 1914 Hirondelle no. 7 bike. OJ raced on a modern Condor Leggero SL bike with carbon wheels and electronic gears.
