He finished 2nd in both the 72 mile road race and criterion at the collegiate road nationals in Madison, Wisconsin.

Lemieux, who's currently enrolled at MSU Mankato, accomplished this in his first year competing at nationals.

He says he trains on his own most of the time and after this finish, he's going after a bigger goal.

“Second place I’m really happy with and I can sit back and think this is pretty great. Think about where I’ve been and where I’ve come second place is better of, gives me some motivation for next year.”
