Disinhibited after an exhausting Comeragh Challenge I approached Sean Kelly and asked him to sign my copy of his great autobiography ‘Hunger’
‘I cycled up Mount Ventoux 4 times in a day Sean! ‘ I explained excitedly.
‘Why? ‘ he asked
‘I don’t think I’ll ever add the Tour of Flanders to my Palmares either, Sean’ I added. Well he started it.
Sean was patiently signing books and posing for photos when I passed one hour later. He had time for a chat and a laugh with everyone and shows no sign of having heard it all before. Wonderful!
