The Amy D. Foundation bio picture
  • About Amy

    Amy Alison Dombroski passed tragically at age 26 while training abroad in Belgium. She was a versatile cyclist with U23 National Championship titles in road, mountain, and cyclocross. Still early in her career, she was considered by many in the sport to be a rising talent and serious contender at world-class cycling events.

    In her short but full life, Amy touched the hearts of communities in the United States and Europe. Amy had a passion for life that transcended the sport of cycling; she loved to share this passion with the friends and family that surrounded her. She also had an uncanny ability to transform challenges she faced in her own life into intense positive focus. The tattoo of a lighting bolt that Amy bore on her wrist served as a remembrance of her mother’s tragic death, and provided her a daily source of motivation.
