She represented the USA at the Pan American Games. She was ranked by the UCI, the global governing body for professional cycling, in the Top 10 professional racers in the world. From the UCI World Tour, she began exploring all things gravel. She won her first gravel race at DK200, setting the current course record, and continued to become 3x Gravel Worlds Champion. In due course, Alison was crowned by event coordinators and the gravel community as the inaugural “Queen of Gravel”. Alison is dedicated to investing in the sport of cycling and serves on the Board of Directors of USA Cycling.
About Ellie Smart
At the age of fifteen, Smart packed her bags, kissed her family goodbye, and moved away from home to train in hopes of making her dream a reality. She went on to dive collegiately at the University of California, Berkeley, where she qualified for NCAA’s and won a National Championship with her team in 2015. She graduated with a degree in Media Studies. Still feeling like she had more to give in the sport of diving, Smart went cliff jumping for the first time and immediately realized that everything up to that point in her life had been preparing her for this. Smart began diving again, but with the intent to be a “high diver.” Within a year, Smart became part of Team USA and is currently the youngest high diver representing the United States. She won a Bronze Medal at the 2018 FINA World Cup in Abu Dhabi and became a permanent diver on the 2019 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series. In addition to her professional diving career, Smart is also a motivational speaker, travel blogger and environmental activist. She founded “Clean Cliffs” in 2017, which aims to prevent plastic pollution worldwide and inspire others to take action through adventure.
