Where in the world is ... Sean Hambrook in 2012
Jun 7th, 12. Sean Hambrook has been on the podium almost every weekend since he arrived in France three months ago.
The 18 year old from Nelson was recently named in the NZ team to contest the UCI Junior Road World Championships in The Netherlands in September.
Only days after arriving in France, Hambrook placed third in his first European race. A week later he took his first European win at the Grand Prix de la Courtine in Switzerland.
His consistent podiums over the next few weeks saw him net the junior Franco-Suisse series title.
Based in Morteau, France, the teen is riding for VCC Morteau-Montbenoit, a team wtih a strong Kiwi connection over the years.
Past Kiwis who have donned the team's colours include RadioShack Nissan Trek professional George Bennett (2009), Sean's older brother Kieran in 2010, and four Kiwis last year; Joel MacMillian, Louis Wright, Hamish Brown and Fraser Birmingham.
Two weeks ago Hambrook finished 7th in the UCI 2.1 Tour du Pays de Vaud, which he rates as one of his most important results to date.
His is certainly a name to watch as he builds towards the Junior World Championships later this year.
