Abstract:

Sean Kelly is recognised as one of the top ten professional cyclists of all time and inspired admiration and respect from his rivals, not just because of the races he won but the manner he conducted himself. Born and raised on a farm in rural Ireland, Kelly identified cycling as an escape route to a different, possibly better life. He turned professional in 1977 and his career spanned 18 seasons. His victories in the toughest single-day Classics, Paris-Roubaix, Liege-Bastogne-Liege, Milan-San Remo and the Tour of Lombardy - known as the monuments of the cycling world - earned him the nickname King Kelly.
