Building Upon Existing Success
As our racing season heads into our winter break, the LUX / Sideshow Cycling Team would like to share its line-up for 2019. The composition of the men’s and women’s teams were carefully selected to build upon our past success focusing on teamwork, talent and overall positivity. We are very excited to announce seven new riders to the LUX family: Kyle Chromy, Luke Lamperti, Michael Garrison, Seth Callahan, Kayla Hankins, Gabrielle Lehnert & Maddie Woolley.
New to the Men’s Team
Kyle Chromy will be putting his innate climbing abilities to the test during the 2019 season.
Luke Lamperti’s versatility is a clear asset to the LUX/Sideshow Cycling Team.
Multi-talented Time Trial phenom Michael Garrison joins the team.
Seth Callahan brings his bike-handling and sprinting abilities to the team.
Returning to the Men’s team will be current 17-18 National Road Champion Quinn Simmons, National Championship 15-16 Time Trial silver medalist Matthew Riccitello, National Championship 15-16 Road Race silver medalist Jared Scott and National Championship 15-16 double bronze medalist (TT and RR) Logan McLain, as well as work horses Nolan Jenkins, and Gianni Lamperti.
New to the Women’s Team
Kayla Hankins, Track National Champion (15-16) and newly appointed member of the Olympic Development Track Sprint Team, brings her time-tested speed to the Women’s team.
Maddie Woolley joins the LUX / Sideshow Cycling Team after a successful stint with TX-based Mad Duck Cyclery.
Gabrielle Lehnert represented Team USA in the Junior Women Road Race in the 2018 Road World Championships; her superior climbing ability will prove to be a team advantage.
The team’s overall success in 2018 was due in large part to the efforts and development of our junior women. Returning to the Women’s team will be National Championship road race silver medalist Jane Tullis, 1st place US National Cyclocross Champion Petra Schmidtmann, and 1st Overall and 3 stage winner of the Tour of Americas Dairylands Ava Sykes. Melody McLeod will be rejoining our new season after battling an illness. 2017 National Champion Lilly McLeod (10-12) will also return to the LUX / Sideshow Cycling Team in 2019 as she continues her training in a long-term development project.
