Ambitious and driven, Alison is excited to make the next step in her career as she joins Team Sunweb’s Women’s program for 2020.
Alison took up the sport late, getting her first bike at the age of 19 after someone who was working for her parents left it at their house. At university she had a scholarship for athletics but also trained with swimmers and cyclists and thought about pursuing a career in Ironman. However, after entering and winning a few bike races she was soon offered a development spot on a team and hasn’t looked back since.
Seeing herself as a classics style rider who has a good sprint after a tough day in the saddle, Alison loves the tactical side of the sport.
An infectious and bubbly character, Alison enjoys spending her time in Canada helping on her family’s large-scale grain farm, where they also rear bison. While not on the farm, Alison enjoys escaping into the wilderness with her husband, living out the back of a van and enjoying the nature.
