Spencer Miller is a Zionsville Indiana youth that is hooked on cycling. He’s determined and his dream is to make it to the pro level. “I want to be a professional cyclist and race in Europe,” said Miller. In 2013 Miller was introduced to Rollfasts’ founder Matt Tanner at a social event. Tanner quickly saw the passion in this young kid and wanted to teach him all he could about the sport of cycling. Miller joined the Rollfast Cycling Club and was introduced to many other long time cyclists that could help mentor and nurture his skills. Miller went on to say, “I wasn’t very promising or fast on the bike, but Matt took me in. He gave me a jersey and team to ride for. He gave me a chance to ride with Rollfast where there was no pressure for results. Just a bunch of guys who love to ride and improve themselves. He didn’t bring me onto the team because I was a good rider, but he brought me onto the team to supply me with the tools to get better every day.” As Miller progressed over the years, he began winning races. “His power to weight is now incredible,” said Tanner. “He has a real gift for staying in a very strong group and bridging to breaks when needed. It was a real treat to see him do his first real climbing out in Arizona in January. He was like a duck to water and dropped us all.”

 

While in Tucson Arizona at the Cinch Cycling Camp, Tom Danielson saw the potential and asked him to stay for a few more weeks to train. "It's been a great experience so far working with Spencer,” said Tom Danielson. “I met him as he was a guest at the Cinch Cycling Camp with the Rollfast group. After a few rides I could see he had immense talent and watched him progress greatly throughout the week. I really enjoyed working one on one with Spencer and that inspired me to start a personalized coaching component to the Cinch Cycling business. In the four short weeks I have seen Spencer already increase his power greatly and last week he finished high up in the Valley of the Sun race. I believe Spencer has what it takes to make it to the World Tour and at Cinch Cycling we are motivated to help him get there."
