Sean Kelly Day

For the Irish day, a hard, old-school man. Sean Kelly was lugged steel and toe clips when all the other riders were thinking indexed and clipless. And he was tougher than woodpecker lips, winning Paris-Roubaix in '84 & '86, along with Paris-Nice seven years in a row! Woodpecker lips.

In green.
And mud.

You should repost my autographed jersey. Sean is a great guy.

Also I am very sorry for your loss.

"old skool" is MTB talk. Road talk is still "old school". ;0)
