October 3, 2023

Athletes including L39ION’s Tyler Williams and others have been signed to NCL franchise teams for the 2024 season.

/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – The National Cycling League is excited to announce the addition of new athletes to both owned teams – Denver Disruptors and Miami Nights. One of the first athletes finalized was Tyler Williams, coming from the UCI Continental team, L39ION of Los Angeles.

Williams will make his debut with the Miami Nights for the 2024 season, and compete alongside recently re-signed athletes like Paola Muñoz, Andrea Cyr, Clever Martinez, Jonny Clarke, Brittany Parffrey, Heidy Praderas, and Daniely Garcia.

Tyler has been racing professionally for ten years, including six years overseas in Europe and Asia. After returning to the States in 2019, Williams fell in love with the American racing calendar and is dedicated to building the sport of cycling in the US. Since returning to the US, Tyler has won Athens Twilight, Tulsa Tough’s Cry Baby Hill, as well as a stage and the GC of the Walmart Joe Martin Stage Race (JMSR). Tyler also placed third in the criterium and second in the road race at the 2023 USA Pro National Championships.

Tyler Williams – Miami Nights

“I am looking forward to starting a new chapter in my career with the Miami Nights. It will be challenging to learn a new racing style and exciting to work with a new group. As for my new teammates, I already know most of them, so that’s exciting for me as well. My goal is to leave a legacy, and that’s what I’ve been focusing on. This will provide me with a new challenge and an opportunity to see what else I can accomplish as an athlete.”

Reed McCalvin – NCL VP, Teams & Athletes

“I have known Tyler for a long time and have worked with him on a few teams. I cannot express how excited we are about having him sign with the NCL. Over the last five years, Tyler has been one of the best cyclists in the US. With his overseas experience, Walmart Joe Martin Stage Race victory, and leading his team to success in some of the most prestigious American criteriums, he will make a great addition to the Miami Nights in 2024.”

Joining Tyler on the Miami Nights are Melsey Perez and William Hardin. “Perez has medaled and won National and Caribbean championships and is very strong in the Florida racing scene. William Hardin has also proved to be a superb athlete, specifically in 2023 stage races, recording top finishes at JMSR and the US Nationals” said McCalvin.

The Denver Disruptors recently welcomed Anna Hicks and Grace Arlandson to the team. “Hicks was extremely impressive alongside her Cynesca teammates in Europe this past year and will notch multiple podiums next season. Arlandson is also an extremely determined and race-savvy rider who will score valuable points for the team.”

In the coming weeks, the NCL will continue to announce athletes and their respective teams, 2024 NCL Cup participating teams, and additional details on the 2024 race schedule.
