Spartan Athletics Spurred Alumna on to Professional Cycling Success

In 2016, Alison Jackson ('15) was named to Canada’s Rio Team as an alternate rider, a major step for an aspiring athlete in only her second year of professional riding. In 2017, Jackson represented Italian team Be Pink and rode in more Women’s Tour races than any woman in the world. But none of this would be possible if not for the influence of the Trinity Western University Spartan Athletics coaching team who encouraged her to pursue excellence.
