EF Education-TIBCO-SVB (France) - Press Release: After she pulled the break away from the pursuers time and time again, after she remained composed on the velodrome in what is the most pivotal moment of her career, after she uncorked a long sprint on the historic cement of the Roubaix Velodrome…. She danced.
Of course, she danced.
She's the queen of TikTok. Now, she's the queen of Paris-Roubaix.
“Either you don’t ride and you lose the race or you ride hard and you have a chance. I trusted myself and my passion an heart and it turned out with a win,” she said. “I wanted to be part of the action; I wanted to be ahead of the race. Our team has been waiting and it hasn’t been working. Because we had rain it was going to be slick out there. In a race like this you need to avoid back luck. When the move went, I was waiting and available and wanted to ride it.”
She lifted the giant cobblestone, given to the winner of the sport’s most storied one-day race, high. And on the podium, she danced.
Congrats, Alison. We are so proud of you.
