About Alison:

 

Alison joined the professional cycling ranks in 2015 after competing internationally in triathlon and cross-country running.  Alison and her husband spend most of their time living on the road in a van, following the sun all over North America with regular pauses in her hometown Vermilion, AB - to help out on the family farm and bison ranch.  Other passions of Alison's include yoga, dance, knitting, and simply exploring outside. 

 

// Q&A with Alison 

 

Why cycling?

 

I love the game. It's not just about physical fitness but also about skills, smarts and some theatrics.
 

What's your motivation? 
 

There are new motivations each day! My eye is always on the prize. I'm hungry for the win.


Favorite ride:

When not riding, I like to...:

Favorite post-ride food:

Any advice to future // aspiring cyclists?

 

Cycling is best done with others: friends, strangers, or frienemies!

Any other interesting fact?

 

I have never had a cavity.

 

Weird cycling ritual:

 

No rituals, ever since living in Italy I learned how to go with the flow and don't need a stable environment in order to perform.
