Rams Cyclocross came out of the starting gate swinging this year by sweeping the podium for the first two weeks of the SuperPrestige Cyclocross Series in Illinois. Connor Paine ’24Sawyer Merlin ’25Ash Falk ’26, and Kolce Mileski ’27 all shared in the glory. The success continued as the team headed back to St. Louis in October with Paine, Joe Intagliata ’25, and Falk taking first through third places in the Junior Division in Queeny Park. As riders moved up to the more competitive adult divisions, Paine, Merlin, and Intagliata all pushed towards top 10 finishes with older, more experienced cyclists. The team took a week off of racing in late September to support Sawyer Merlin’s Pedal the Cause team, “Merlin’s Magical Riders.” Their efforts raised over $40,000 to help find a cure for cancer. The team then turned their efforts to indoor preparations for the highly anticipated spring road season.
