The Killington Mountain School Cycling team is back in action! They headed to Gainesville, Florida for two weeks of early season road training where all of the KMS riders logged over 700 sunny miles over rolling roads through endless rural horse farms. On the way home, the team took the opportunity to get their race feet wet at the Clemson Collegiate Cycling Weekend (a.k.a. The Upstate Cycling Classic).
Coach Brad Ramsay checked in with a recap of the trip, "Vastly different from the gently rolling terrain in Florida, the Clemson Road Race threw some solid climbs at us. However, the KMS squad adapted quickly, with Maddy Smith and Aliza Tobias finishing fifth and seventh, respectively in the Women's B field. In the Men's B Collegiate race, Johannes Stromski and Leo Kirkpatrick-Baird teamed up to haul back a dangerous break, setting up Josh Chu to finish in the top five, which was a nice display of teamwork!
