He helped his PA Team decisively win the National Team Pursuit Championship and qualify for the 2004 Junior World Track Championships in Los Angeles.
Michael is a strong believer in combining a cycling career with higher education. He graduated from Bucknell University in 2008 with a degree in psychology and collected 11 collegiate cycling victories throughout his academic career making him the winningest Eastern Collegiate Cycling Conference rider during 2004 through 2008. As a freshman in 2005, he became the ECCC Champion and achieved a top-5 performance in the Collegiate National Road Championships.
After graduation Michael continued his elite racing career. In 2009 he was invited to join Team Cykelcity.se of Sweden and turned professional with them in 2011 where he earned international victories in Belgium and Sweden. That year he attained his lifelong dream of competing in the Philadelphia International Cycling Championships, the race his father founded.

U.S. He is well known and respected regionally with 5 wins in 2015 including the PA State Road Championship.
