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, Liège-Bastogne-Liège, Milan-San Remo and the Tour of Lombardy – known as the monuments of the cycling world – earned him the nickname King Kelly.

Kelly turned professional in 1977, at a time when cycling was dominated by riders from the sport’s European heartland. He won a stage in his first Tour de France in 1978 and finished the race 12 times. He won the first of four green jerseys in 1982 and finished fourth overall in 1985.

Although he first made an impression as a fast, fearless and sometimes reckless sprinter, Kelly evolved into one of the sport’s greatest ever all-rounders, able to win the major international stage races. He won the Vuelta a España in 1988, after a painful near-miss the previous season, and his run of seven successive victories at Paris-Nice is unlikely to ever be matched. Kelly’s appetite for success was rarely satisfied.

He was recognised as one of the toughest competitors in the bunch and is recognised in Ireland as one of the country’s greatest ever athletes. He is now the senior expert co-commentator for the international broadcaster Eurosport, covering all the major races.

Here, for the first time, he tells the story of his racing career in his own words.
