When it comes to local heroes, Allison's on the top of our two-wheeled podium. Ripping trails, cyclocross courses, and hosting clinics in her hometown and all over the PNW, we dig her gritty attitude and bright personality. During the day she teaches middle and high school kids English and the power of chasing dreams, like she did on her journey to becoming a pro athlete. (Cycling came after falling short in soccer and ski racing...) She's always down for an impromptu dance party, and gets pumped to Biggie, 2Pac, and TSwift.

Best book you’ve read recently?
How Bad Do You Want It? By Matt Fitzgerald
If you could choose another sport to go pro in, what would it be?
Would you rather have Gilbert Gottfried narrate your every thought out loud or have Chumbawumba’s “Tubthumping” playing constantly in the background everywhere you went?
Chumbawumba’s “Tubthumping” fo sho! What can I say, 90’s kid.
