About

Lee is a professional cyclist with the UCI Continental CCN Cycling Team.

Lee is quite possibly the world's oldest neo-pro ever - receiving a contract to ride for a UCI Continental team three years ago at 37 and has since raced around the world, from East Java to Korea, Oman to Qatar. Lee has even managed to get on a startline or three in the heartland of the sport - Belgium, where he was comprehensively and properly spanked.

Lee loves the millions of lycra-clad folk around the world who head out each weekend to suffer and dream, to emulate their heroes on their local hills and descents, to become noble, dammit, even if only in their own minds. They are the true guardians of the sport.

Communicating with them is what makes it all so worthwhile.

Tour de France Stage 9: Time trials, coke and personalities

13 Jul 2015

It’s a bit cruel having a team time trial at any time other than on the first day. Especially when it’s at the end of a first week that saw several teams lose riders due to the vicious crashes.

Tour de France Stage 7: Crashes, yellow jerseys and racism

11 Jul 2015

I’m pretty sure I just watched Stage 7 of the Tour de France but I’m a little suspicious that it might have been some other race. No one crashed out, nothing truly insane happened and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse failed to appear.

Abandonments galore at le Tour! Let the madness reign

Abandonments galore at le Tour! Let the madness reign

7 Jul 2015

There seems to be no Tour de France or Giro of recent memory that hasn’t been of the crash-bang-whallop variety straight from the off, forcing some riders to abandon the race of their season before it’s really even begun.
