Alison Tetrick: From Brain Injury to Gravel Adventures; Life as a Pro Cyclist The Common Threads

    • Sports

Pro cyclist Alison Tetrick didn’t have a traditional upbringing full of team sports and structured activities. Rather, Alison grew up on a cattle ranch, and used her grit, drive and belief that anything was possible to become a collegiate tennis player before quickly hitting the cycling world tour as a road racer.



Today Alison is lauded in the world of gravel biking, and as an ambassador for her sport. But the journey doesn't follow a straight line. Her cycling career almost came crashing down after a traumatic brain injury from crashes in 2010 and 2011 left her in a spiral of disorientation and depression.



Alison sits down with Prokit's David Swain to talk about her path back to the top levels of cycling, what she’ll be doing in ten years, her career off the bike, role models, and why gravel biking has found the perfect combination whether you’re winning or on the “party bus.”
