Kelly launches Tour of Waterford

County Waterford event contributing to a good cause

You might ask: 'Why is Sean Kelly hanging out with someone dressed as a sunflower?'

The answer: To launch the Sean Kelly Tour of Waterford.

The Irish cycling stalwart recently launched the race bearing his name, to be held in County Waterford on August 30. The sunflower-clad young woman is his daughter Stacey, and with the Irish Cancer Society the nominated charity for this year's event, the yellow flower suit was donned to represent the cause. It also brought a little sunshine to what looked like a pretty gloomy day.
