Sean loves to combine his love of sport and writing.
He played country football for 20 years in Victoria and Western Australia, along the way breaking, straining or tearing every bone, muscle or tendon in his body.
He recently won the Stringybark Australian Short Story History award for his depiction of the Aboriginal game of Marngrook and his work has appeared in various newspapers and anthologies.
He has covered recent editions of the Jayco-Herald Sun Tour and the Australian road cycling titles.
Despite a couple of second places in D grade club races he is still not quite as fast as Cadel!

As we all know by now, Williams has been found guilty of grievous bodily harm after breaking a man’s jaw in an incident that took place out front of an Albany nightclub in December 2012. The […]
I almost felt sorry for Tyler Hamilton. Almost. Of course, I knew this would happen. It was why I had refrained from buying his book, The Secret Race, in the first place. I had no interest in reading about his excuses and warped justifications for becoming a drug cheat, but more than that, I didn’t […]
The cycling off season, as short as it seems to be these days, can be just as fraught with danger for our favourite pro-cyclists as the harrowing descents of the Tour de France or the slippery cobbles of the Trouee d’Arenberg. While they may be safe from the inherent danger of riding amid 200 other […]
Simon Gerrans is fast becoming a contender for the title of Australia’s greatest ever road cyclist. The boy from Mansfield who took up cycling at the urging of then neighbour Phil Anderson after being injured in a motorcycling accident may not be at the top of the tree yet, but he is not far from […]
