Local Cyclist ranked #1 in nation

Submitted By Michael Wesley

11 year old Alvarado Middle School freshman Niles Wesley is ranked National #1 with USA Cycling for Men 10-12 year old Individual Pursuit. Individual Pursuit is a Track Cycling event where two cyclists begin the race from a standing start on opposite sides of the track and try to complete the race distance in the shortest amount of time. Niles' results in Individual Pursuit from a series of events ranked him first nationally with USA Cycling.

Niles started racing BMX at Santa Clara PAL BMX at 5 years old, and then started Track Racing in South San Jose at the Hellyer County Park Velodrome at 9 years old. At 8 years old, Niles won his first BMX State Championship race in Napa, California. When Niles discovered free junior track racing classes at the Hellyer County Park Velodrome he was immediately hooked. Niles has been training and racing at the Hellyer County Park Velodrome ever since.

Niles has a great chance of winning the 2013 Omnium at the Junior State Championship and wants to go to the Junior National Championship in Pennsylvania.
