This month we had the privilege to welcome LUX Sideshow Cycling Team. LUX Cycling is an elite under-19 development team aimed to educate and empower the top junior riders in the United States to succeed at the highest levels of competitive cycling and in life.

We welcomed LUX Cycling in the week before the Watersley Ladies Challenge, which took place on the weekend of 3, 4, and 5 September 2021. Makayla Macpherson was able to win the 1st stage of the Watersley Ladies Challenge and became 3rd in the 3rd stage over 73 km.

LUX Sideshow Cycling Team stayed at Watersley Sports & Talentpark to participate in various competitions within Europe from Sittard. They took part in a multi-day event in Ireland, The Women's Tour of Ireland, and won 3 stages. Some of this group of riders also took part in the World Cycling Championships in Leuven, Belgium.

Note: Kaia Schmid won the silver medal in the U19 women's road race.
