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.

It seems to be catching, like the sniffly cold your kid brings back from school that explodes into full-blown influenza and ravages the household.

As an Englishman, I’ve become something of an expert in hope – and no, I’m not talking about cricket… Every four years the football World Cup rolls around and every four years, once the utter despair and dejection of yet another woeful set of otherwise ‘plucky’ performances fades just ever so slightly, the players, manager […]
Amidst all the brouhaha that our favourite sport’s world class dopers-with-a-cycling-problem have brought us in recent times, has been another casualty, stacked in a body bag alongside Lance’s honesty, withered and dried up almost beyond recognition. Except it wasn’t a man, nor a team that had fallen by the wayside, but a race. A race […]
Changes are being rung in under the new presidency of the UCI by Brian Cookson – from confiscating computers and hard drives from former President Pat McQuaid’s people right after his victory, to setting out a roadmap for the sport’s recovery. But one of the toughest challenges facing the governing body is the rehabilitation of […]
Ah, Mark Cavendish. The most divisive rider in the pro peloton has a new book out. He seems to have decided that the best way to publicise it is to spend several pages trying to roll back the years on behalf of everyone’s favourite sociopathic doper, Lance Armstrong, coming out with a stream of claptrap […]
Let me set my stall out from the start: I don’t believe former dopers have any place in the management or training of current professionals. Be it Eric Zabel, Bjarne Riis, Matt White or any other former pro that has either admitted to doping or been outed post-career, their presence within the firmament of the […]
