John James 'Sean' Kelly is an Irish former professional road bicycle racer. He was one of the most successful road cyclists of the 1980s, and one of the finest classics riders of all time. From turning professional in 1977 until his retirement in 1994, he won nine monument classics, and 193 professional races in total.

Kelly is a commentator for the English-language services of Eurosport and has established and is involved in the Sean Kelly Cycling Academy in Belgium. In 2006 he launched Ireland's first professional team, the Sean Kelly Team, composed of young Irish and Belgian riders based at the Sean Kelly Cycling Academy in Merchtem, Belgium.

He rides long-distance charity cycling tours with Blazing Saddles, a charity raising money for the blind and partially sighted. Such tours have included a journey across America by bike in 2000. He also participates in charity cycling endurance events in Scotland (notably with the Braveheart Cycling Fund), England, France and Ireland.

The inaugural Sean Kelly Tour of Waterford introduced on 19 August 2007, with Kelly one of the 600 participants to take part, has grown year on year and has become a major event on the national calendar with approximately 5,000 cyclists taking part on 28 August 2011. With the spirited growth in cycling evident we are excited to see what 2012 will bring

SportActive are delighted to announce that the Sean Kelly's Continental AnPost RAS Team will be attending the Irish Cycling Show on Saturday 19th May, at 1.00pm, where a meet and greet will be arranged for attending media and consumers.
