 25 Laps With Lucas Mills (Dec. 12, 2018)

Lucas Mills grew up in a family full of athletes. He spent his early years riding in the family van, traveling to competitions for his siblings’ many sports. He raced in his first speedskating meet as a Tiny Tot—he claims it was a disaster—and was competing regularly by the age of 7. After years racing both long track and short track, Lucas moved away from home at the age of 14 to Milwaukee, where he soon earned a spot on the Junior National Long Track Team. He raced in three Junior World Championships and eventually made the Senior National Team, competing in both Sprint and Allround World Cups.
