Sean Kelly, or 'King Kelly', as his fellow professionals and fans referred to him, is one of the greatest cyclists the World has ever seen. Ranked number two in the history of the sport, second only to Belgiums Eddy Merckx.
An incredible work ethic and dedication to fulfil his ambitions, enabled the well grounded Kelly to reach the very pinnacle of World Sport whilst always remaining in touch with his roots back home in Carrick on Suir.
193 Professional victories followed an incredible amateur career. No cyclist will ever come close to the achievements of Kelly again, and for this reason even the very best of todays professionals are in awe of the great Irishman.
Nowadays Sean still rides his bike three to four times per week when not doing TV commentary on all of the major races for Eurosport GCN.
