MICDS cycling came out swinging this spring, kicking off the season with a handful of strong performances in the opening weekend of racing in April. Connor Paine ’24 led the team through the season and opened with a 4th place Cat 5 finish at World Wide Technology Raceway. Kolce Mileski ’27 was hot on his heels with a 5th-place finish. Ash Falk ’26 emerged this season as a Junior rider who is tough to contend with, coming in 2nd in the Junior’s category, and Dalton Costick ’26 took 3rd in the same race. The next day, the team was back in action at Tilles Park with Mileski pulling down a 3rd place finish and Joe Intagliata ’25 right behind him in 4th. The good times continued with Falk and Costick winning their age group races and Sophia Ashley-Martin ’26 missing a win in the Women’s 3/4/5 race by less than a wheel at the line. The team also competed at Carondelet Park for Tuesday Night Worlds and at Marais Temps Clair Conservation Area for Wednesday Night Time Trials. For summer, the team continues to train in preparation for the fall Cyclocross season and Merlin’s Magic Ride, the Pedal the Cause team of Sawyer Merlin ’25.
