Lee first hopped onto a bike when he was 16, won some races, and did well enough to be invited to the Junior Tour of Ireland. Then one day he just gave it up – Yes, gave it all up for greener pastures or as he says “the siren song beckoning me towards the rocks with promises of far away adventures, of late nights and dodgy bars”….
Maybe it was a few years or a few beers later, he said that on one spring morning, after many years of relative inactivity and a little bit too much experience under his oversized belt, he walked into a bike shop, completely on a whim, and ten minutes later he was a the owner of a cheap, but half-decent racing bike. And after the very first ride, he fell in love all over again.
That renewed love of riding opened up the door to race in the The Tour of Thailand, for a Taiwan-based team Fuji-Asia. Lee was holding strong at fifth when he punctured, but was thrilled taking 12th on the GC. Other tours followed, such as the Tour of China and the Tour of East Java.
Standing at the top of the podium after winning the Singapore National Championships, (2010) Lee might have thought back to that fateful day when he bought his half-decent bike after 16 years of no training. Then a win again in the Singapore National ITT (2011) was his icing on the cake!
Extreme Endurance was fortunate enough to have Lee try, what he calls”The best supplement I have ever tried”. Did it help Lee to the top of the podium? He says “they aren’t magical little beans that will turn you into a Euro-Pro, you still need to put in the miles, but they will decrease lactic acid buildup, thereby allowing you to train at a higher intensity for longer. I’ve racked up some good wins and seem to have gotten over the cramping problems I had last year too – whether that’s due to the Extreme Endurance pills or not I don’t know, but I suspect so. – But I want to keep these little pills all to myself!”
