A Bay Area local and Iconic cyclist and I share a afternoon taking her past and her everyday, on and off the gravel. I have so much respect for her tenacity and ability to talk about her brain trama. Alison Tetrick Has a amazing ability to have fun and give back to the cycling community all the while doing it with a huge smile even if it is raining and cold.
PRO ROAD RACER ALISON TETRICK EXPLODED ONTO THE GRAVEL SCENE WHEN SHE WON LAST YEAR’S DIRTY KANZA 200, SMASHING THE WOMEN’S COURSE RECORD. NOW, SHE HAS A SPONSORSHIP FROM SPECIALIZED, THE FREEDOM TO RACE ANY OFF-ROAD EVENTS SHE WANTS, AND A THRIVING CAREER AS A COMMUNICATIONS CONSULTANT. GRAVEL’S NEWEST STAR IS IN A GOOD PLACE. WHAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW IS THE HELL SHE HAD TO GO THROUGH TO GET THERE.
