Mier, a student of Punta Princesa Night High School, is the son of Cebu Sports Hall of Famer Renato Mier, a bronze medalist in the 1982 Asian Games in New Delhi, India.
Interestingly, two other members of the RP junior squad are also sons of former top cyclists namely Candido Quirimit Jr. and George Oconer.
