While the best cyclists in the world continue to compete in the Tour de France, some younger cyclists are riding around the Miller School.

MSA just wrapped up a mountain biking camp, and on Wednesday, welcomed a new group of young riders in for a 5-day road riding camp.

"I work with developing athletes and help them train like professionals, become stronger, and really honestly try to develop a passion from the sport of cycling," says MSA Endurance Team director Andy Guptill. "The camp is just an extension of that, only in some ways, more fun."

This is the fifth year of the camp at Miller, which brings young riders in from the region and occasionally, other countries.

"The first year I came, I really didn't think much of cycling at all actually," said Liam Holowesko, a 13-year-old rider who is from the Bahamas. "I played soccer. Spending the week with Andy and just riding with every one of the riders here in the environment, it really taught me and made me appreciate cycling. Watching everyone grow as riders and becoming good friends with everyone, it's really nice to see."
