Lee is editor of The Roar's cycling section and 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.

Threee great little films for you here to enjoy! The first video gives praise to Mark Cavendish of Omega Pharma-QuickStep, who with that win in stage one of the 2013 Giro d’Italia racked up, remarkably, his 99th career victory. If you can get past the rather annoying ‘Roadrunner’ intro, there’s a fine breakdown of just [...]
If you’re a fan of A Sunday In Hell, the seminal 1977 documentary about great Paris-Roubaix race, or Stars and Watercarriers (1973), then you’ll appreciate this in-depth study of Ole Ritter’s attempt on the world hour record, titled The Impossible Hour. ‘The Hour’ is still a relatively unknown event outside of hardcore cycling circles, but [...]
The Cycling Australia National Road Series kicked off yesterday with the first stage of the Tour de Perth offering up a thrilling finish on Rottnest Island. The spoils went to Jack Anderson of Budget Forklifts, with the team also claiming second as Samuel Horgan managed to claim second place, closely followed by Neil Vad Der [...]
Today saw the first stage of the 2013 UCI 2.1 Tour de Taiwan, a 156km day of racing over a 12km circuit that saw crashes (one involving a stationary press motorbike), fierce attacks and even fiercer winds. The peloton enjoyed all this under a beating sun that kept temperatures somewhere in the region of 32 [...]
It is, by common consent, the greatest one day race on the planet. Paris-Roubaix, also known as The Hell of the North, was first run in 1896. This is the race that has made legends of a select few and destroyed so many more. The winner’s list of the race is a ‘who’s who’ of [...]
