About

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!

3 days ago

If competitors thought the course was tough at the national time trial championships earlier this year, they are going to hate what’s in store for them this time around.

Nibali the Grand Tour star of 2014

23 Oct 2014

This year’s trio of Grand Tours provided us with plenty of highlights and drama, but one image in particular keeps coming back to me. Of the three races, the memory most prominent in my mind is of Vincenzo Nibali ploughing his way across the muddy cobbles on Stage 5 of the Tour. Nibali had already […]

It’s time for Peter Sagan to deliver

It's time for Peter Sagan to deliver

10 Oct 2014

When Peter Sagan announced himself to the greater cycling world with three stage wins at the 2012 Tour de France, there seemed to be no limit to his potential.
