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.

Confessed dopers Tyler Hamilton, Levi Leipheimer and George Hincapie are rumoured to be planning a surprise party for Stuart O’Grady, welcoming him to the club. It’s a very select club, one that refused entry to the likes of Jan Ulrich, Floyd Landis and Riccardo Ricco. In Ulrich’s case it seems he crossed the line by […]
This isn’t a new story. It’s been kicking around now since the end of January. Yet there’s been very little commentary written on the deal that will see last year’s surprise Vuelta a Espana winner of 2013, Chris Horner, twinkling his little magic toes all over the World Tour again this year. I haven’t written […]
Philippe Gilbert is one of my favourite riders on the World Tour – since he debuted with Francaise Des Jeux back in 2003, the man has done enough to be considered a living legend. His first year in the pro peloton brought the Points Classification and a stage win at the Tour de l’Avenir, no […]
“I would have liked to raced the Tour again this year, but the team wants me to go to the Giro. The one who pays has the final say.” Thus spoke Nairo Quintana just a couple of days ago after it was revealed the 24-year-old Colombian would not be racing the Tour de France. Why? […]
Sometimes as a journalist you have to admit that you got it wrong and take off the hat (it’s an English flat cap, grey tweed) and shove it in your mouth. I think that’s part of the reason for the expression “…I’ll eat my hat”, as the process means there’s far less chance of more […]
