<strong>On March 7, 2015 Megan Guarnier made history. With 15km remaining in the inaugural edition of the women’s Strade Bianche, Megan attacked, pulling away from the breakaway group and soloing to a historic victory. The commanding win over the world-class female field is all the more amazing considering Megan’s impromptu journey to the top of pro cycling. </strong>
Megan’s road to cycling began in the pool, where she was a national level swimmer and named a USA Swimming’s Scholastic 2001 All-American. As Megan began her collegiate career at Middlebury College persistent shoulder injuries forced Megan out of the pool and onto the bike.
Megan quickly found success, rising up the domestic ranks with three top-10 results at the 2006 US Elite, Masters, U23 and Juniors Road National Championships. In 2011, Megan burst onto the international scene winning the Giro della Toscana before earning the stars-and-stripes jersey as the 2012 US National Road Race Championships.
In 2014, Megan finished second at the US National Road Race Championships and added podium finishes at the Pan American Time Trial and Road Race Championships.
Now following Megan’s historic victory at the Strade Bianche and second place finish at the Women’s Tour of New Zealand, Megan has her sights set on Olympic Gold at Rio 2016.
