About Sean

In late 1991 I buy a mountain bike from Offshore Sports in Shanklin and started training. Six months months later I lined up in a field of 250 riders at a Mountain Bike race in Dorset. Sat right at the back, not knowing what to expect I raced off, saddle too low, overdressed and totally clueless. I finished 50th and I was hooked! Thus started my career in cycling
