Name: Alison Marie Tetrick
Racing Age: 29
Birthday: April 4th, 1985
Height: 5’9”
Current Residence: Petaluma, California
Hometown: Redding, California
It is hard to explain how I began bike racing. I often find myself saying that I did not find cycling, but cycling found me. It is in my blood you could say. Growing up on a ranch in California my entire life, I learned to ride a horse long before I considered riding a bike.
I was a tennis player by trade, and played NCAA tennis at Abilene Christian University. This was amazing experience where I not only learned dedication to a sport, but also how to balance school, life, and athletics.
I received a B.S. in Biochemistry with emphasis on Molecular Biology and a minor in Nutrition and graduated with the highest honors from ACU. Those who knew me in college have no difficulty labeling me as a nerd because I spent countless hours in the Biochemistry lab doing research on various enzymatic pathways.
Upon graduating, I raced triathlon, winning my age group at Buffalo Springs 70.3 and Wildflower. I went to the Ironman 70.3 World Championships. After attending the 2008 US Women’s Talent ID Camp at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, I began my career as a professional cyclist. I raced for Team TIBCO in 2009 and 2010. Read More
