Brooke Miller Says Goodbye

Posted on 30. Aug, 2010 by in interviews, video

After five years as a professional cyclist racing in Europe and North America, Brooke Miller of the TIBCO/To The Top, decided it was time for a new adventure. Known for her sprinting, competitive spirit and high energy, she can be proud of her many accomplishments, most notably being the first woman to simultaneously hold both the U.S. Road and Crit National Championships in 2008. Earlier this year, she also took home the sprinters jersey from le Tour de l’Aude Cycliste Féminin.

In a fitting way to end her career, roles were reversed. Miller took over the last leadout role for her teammate at Chris Thater Memorial Criterium, delivering Jo Kiesanowski in perfect position to win the field sprint for third. All that, after their other teammate Samantha Schneider claimed her first NRC victory out of a 2-rider break. Miller was so excited that she celebrated before crossing the line herself for fifth on the race.

Both before and after the final race of her career, the 34-year old was all smiles, though a little misty eyes sometimes. Miller explained her decision and looked back and towards the future when we talked in Binghamton.

    I have followed Brooke Miller’s career with Tibco for
    some time and found her enthusiasm affecting my own. She
    has been a credit to the sport and would have been an
    ideal cycling representative for the USA at the Olympics.
    Good luck, Brooke!
