RICHMOND River High's Anna-Leeza Hull won bronze at the cycling World Championship in Spain, capping off a stellar year for the 17-year-old.

Her result at Ponferada, Spain, late last month was considered especially notable as she was the youngest in her under-19 division, with most other riders aged at least a year older.

Anna-Leeza placed third in the Individual Time Trial in trying conditions, which involved treacherous, heavy rain on the course.

Before the event, the Modanville athlete spent a month racing and training with the under-19 Australian team in Belgium.

Anna-Leeza returned home on September 29 and will be undertaking her HSC exams.

In 2014, her stack of achievements included first at the Australian Mountain Climb Championships, first at the Australian Championships under-19 women Time Trial and first at the Queen of the Mountain Mersey Valley Tour.
