Growing up, Madison Kelly was an avid equestrian since the age of five and always on the move with different hobbies including snowboarding, surfing, scuba diving, skydiving, and running. She started cycling summer of 2014 and racing January 2015. Shortly after she started racing as a cat 4, she won the FL state crit championship and rose through the ranks, winning nearly every Florida race she entered in 2015, to eventually cat up to 2 by June and to cat 1 by September. After she graduated Eckerd College with a B.S. in Marine Science, she spent the summer racing Pro 1/2 races alone out of state such as Tour of America’s Dairyland, Boston Mayor’s Cup, Gateway Cup with solid results.
Then in 2016 she and a few other women formed their own small team which grew to become what it is now, CWA Racing p/b TREK! She has seen 35 podiums in 2017 and 2018 in the collegiate and pro/1/2 field including winning both the Indy and Mass Ave criteriums and placing 3rd in the 2018 Intelligentsia Cup Omnium. Now a 4x Collegiate National Champion, the experience she acquired racing solo and with the team the past four years in the pro 1/2 races around the country was extremely valuable and she is excited to have the opportunity to race with the team for yet another year! Even as a full time racer, Madison continued to excel academically and recently completed her thesis; she graduated from Marian University in Indianapolis with an M.S. in Biomedical Science. She now works in a medical research lab in Grand Rapids and continues to pursue a career in science and medicine.
