From solo victories in Belgian stage races to the racing Team Time Trial UCI world championships, Allie has accumulated a sizable amount of success within professional cycling. She, however, would be the first to say that’s not her favorite part of the sport. For Allie, sport has always been about empowerment and growth. From the trials and failures, to the success and victory, it’s all about dedication. Dedication to her training, the sport of cycling, and most importantly, dedication to the relationships surrounding it all.
