Stradalli Cycle – Papa John’s Pizza Cyclist Madison Kelly

While South Florida may not be the center of the United States cycling community, it is starting to produce some of the best cyclists in the sport. A great example of that is Stradalli Cycle – Papa John’s Pizza cyclist Madison Kelly who at the age of only 23 already has multiple wins on her resume.

Unlike many of the pro cyclists from Florida, Madison didn’t get into the sport at a young age. While traveling with her mother, Tish Kelly, Madison decided to try one of her moms’ bikes and was instantly hooked. Upon returning to the US she joined group rides and was not only dominant against riders in her age group but started to beat men and women with years of experience riding.

It wasn’t long before she was climbing the rankings. Going from category 4 to 1 takes the best cyclists years to accomplish. Madison did it in only eight months.  Last year went on to win the Florida State Criterium Championship along with many other races.

Having graduated from Eckerd College, Madison has been competing in many of the top pro category 1-2 races around the country including the Tour of America’s Dairyland, the Gateway Cup as well as the Boston Mayor’s Cup.

With a huge interest in both road and crits racing, a great team, experience coaches and her Stradalli R7 full carbon road bike, Madison Kelly is on the fast track to becoming an elite cyclist.
