MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (Dec. 17, 2015) – Milligan College cycling and Head Coach Zack Nave are excited to announce that Kyle Tiesler has signed for the 2016-2017 season.
Tiesler, a native of Pegram, Tennessee, has grown up around bicycles and began by using the mountain bike to train for dirt bike racing. He eventually transitioned out of racing dirt bikes and started training for cycling full-time.
Tiesler had an explosive year this past season moving from a category 4 to a category 2 racer on the road and a category 1 racer on the mountain bike. Kyle had numerous top-five finishes including a third-place finish as a category 3 racer at the River Gorge criterium and becoming the Tennessee state criterium champion.
Tiesler will look to race road, cyclocross, mountain bike and track next season, and is planning to study mechanical engineering at Milligan.
Coach Nave said of Tiesler, “It is awesome to have Kyle joining our team. He brings a lot of discipline, talent and motivation to our squad. Congratulations Kyle and Welcome to Buff Nation.”
