Third @ The Bird

Antelman on her way to 3rd at Whirlybird CX

PCS Amateur Womens U19 rider Elissa Antelman nabbed a podium spot at the 5th MAC race of the season, Whirlybird CX yesterday. Antelman and PCS team mate Delfina Picchio rolled through the holeshot among the first few riders and were able to hold a solid position for the first two laps. Elissa pulled away and set a steady pace, lengthening her lead over 4th place Evelyn Korbich (Young Medalist/Team Rothrock) to a solid 30 seconds. Picchio rode steadily and finished 5th.

Our Amateur U19 Men, John Clark and Malik Calaquian rode well considering both were forced to enter the pit with flats and other technical issues. They finished 11th and 12th respectively.

Elite U19 rider Jimmy Maurer, current MAC U19 Leader, rode strong to a 5th place finish in his event.

Belgian Mike De Bie had his North American CX debut and raced to a hard fought 8th in the Elite race, with team mate Patrick Bradley rolling in at 15th.

Next up, Providence Cyclocross Festival (Elites) and Town Hall CX (Juniors).

TOP JIMMY!

JIMMY! OOH LA LAAAA!

PCS rider Jimmy Maurer is at the top of the updated MAC Elite U19 standings! His consistency at the first four races of the series has proven successful as he heads into the weekend to race Whirlybird with a slim lead over Team Somerset’s Noah Granigan. We’re proud of the guy and look forward to seeing this tight lead continue to grow over the next few months.

Meet Mike De Bie

Mike De Bie, a 19-year-old from Heist-op-den-Berg, Antwerp, Belgium will be joining us as our European transplant rider this season. Mike began racing at the age of 11, competing in both road and cyclocross, and his entire family including two uncles and father are known for their racing prowess – He has memories of traveling to see their races as a boy and fell in love with the sport. At age 14 Mike, took 1st place in Paris-Roubaix and is also a 3X Gold Medalist in the Belgian National Time Trial Championships.

Mike says he loves all kinds of music, favorite movie is The Omen, and really enjoys watching films. His favorite professional cyclist is Fabian Cancellara. When asked what he hopes to remember about his visit in ten years, Mike stated, “In 2022 I will look back on my visit to America and I hope to have good memories about America.”

De Bie is excited to spend time in the USA and plans to travel the world to race, ride, and meet people from all cultures.

We are very excited to have Mike join the ranks of our squad and show our juniors a thing or two he’s learned from his father and uncles, including current Belgian National Team Director Rudy de Bie. Mike will arrive in time to race Whirlybird CX (Bryn Athn, PA) and will stay through the middle of November.
