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.

Crikey, what an edition of Paris-Roubaix that was. If you weren’t up out of your seat several times over the last 60km, you’re either terminally bed-ridden or already devoid of breath. It was that thrilling. We, the weatherbeaten scandal-weary cycling fans, finally got just what we’d been begging for like puppies for so long – […]
“How can somebody be in love with Hell? It’s a contradiction. Makes no sense. Most would call it madness…” In a religious context, Hell is a place of punishment in the afterlife, an endless realm of suffering for the transgressors, the evil. But not in cycling. In cycling Hell is a place for the brave […]
They hung from the trees, they craned and strained their necks and risked getting smashed to smithereens by the team cars and motos that flew past over rutted track and jutting cobbles. They roared and they hollered and made a din you’d have heard five kilometres away, the whipping wind carrying that wondrous throaty cacophony […]
You can talk about Milan-San Remo being a Monument classic but I think you’ll all nod sagely in agreement with me when I say that the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix are truly the Big Ones of the Spring. I mean, naturally, no disrespect to San Remo, Liege-Bastogne-Liege and the Giro di Lombardia, but Flanders […]
There are a couple of anecdotes about Peter Sagan that tells you just how precocious the 24-year-old from Slovakia was as a teenager. Having started racing bikes at the age of nine he had already made a name for himself by turning up to road races wearing normal shorts and t-shirts, riding a mountain bike […]
What do we do with these guys huh? They come along to a race, doped up, get busted, go away for two years or even less. Then at the end of their suspension, they swan along again and slot right back in to the groove of things, taking part in the very event that they […]
