Alison Tetrick Election Statement


Alison Tetrick
Pro Committee - Eligible Athlete (Female)

Even though I have only been racing for four years, I have represented USA Cycling all around the world through racing, training, and other events. Nothing is more humbling and satisfying than donning the USA National Team kit and racing for our cycling federation. I would be honored to be an elite femile athlete athlete for the USA Cycling Pro Committee, and would love to be considered for this role.

I believe I could fulfill this position through my experience racing not only worldwide but also locally, and use this knowlege to give feedback and innovative ideas. My experience is not just limited to racing, but I also have had extensive involvement with the USA Cycling Development  Foundation and other fundraising and media related events. My career started when I was invited to a 2008 USA Cycling Development Foundation Talent ID camp in Colorado Springs. I was shown the incredible opportunities that cycling possessed, as well as was introduced to the USA Cycling infrastructure. From that point on, my racing career began. I have absorbed so much knowledge throughout these last few years , and would love to continue to bolster the federation. Since I hace a relatively new career in the sport, I can offer a fresh perspective and energy to the committee that will in turn benefit the other licensed members. I am incredibly passionate, not only about racing my bike, but just the purity of riding my bike and getting more people involved. Not only are my sister and parents now USA Cycling members, but my 80 year old grandfather is as well. He is even the current 80+ National Road and Time Trial Champion. I can offer feedback from so many different entities of USA Cycling, but especially from the elite competitors. We have an incredible cycling community thoughout our nation, and it can only get more pronounced with the appropriate encouragement and directions. I would love to be able to give back to the community that has already given me so much and fulfill this position on the committee. I firmly believe I have the experience and passion to be able to be an invaluable athlete representitive for USA Cycling. 

Please consider me for this position.
