We have two great auctions going on (closing 7:00 pm MST on Tuesday 11/22), net proceeds of which will help fund the 2017 Amy D. Foundation road cycling programming! The road cycling program builds opportunities for up and coming young women to race along side, and be mentored by, seasoned athletes and professional staff.
SRM Training Systems is graciously donating a brand new factory warrantied Rotor 3D+ Powermeter system with PC8 Computer. View and bid here
Olympian Mara Abbott, a long-time SRM-supported athlete, has donated an autographed Queen of the Mountain jersey from the 2015 USA Pro Challenge. Mara won the Queen of the Mountain competition riding for the Amy D. Foundation team at the inaugural Women’s USA Pro Challenge event in Colorado. View and bid here
“SRM is honored to have been a long-time sponsor of Amy Dombroski, following and supporting her through an inspiring international, yet all-too-short, racing career. The Amy D Foundation is dedicated to promoting involvement and equality for women in cycling, a cause that SRM passionately supports. An SRM Training System has been donated for auction in celebration of Amy’s life and in support of the Amy D Foundation.”
Mara Abbott has been involved in the Amy D. Foundation road cycling program from its inception, and has been a wonderful mentor for many of the other women in the program. Mara’s involvement in Amy D. Foundation programming is also meaningful because of her relationship with Amy Dombroski.
“Amy was a good friend of mine and inspired me in my cycling career with the attitude and determination she brought to her racing,” Mara Abbot said. “I often wished to emulate Amy in my moments of struggle. Amy was a special person to me… To be able to represent the spirit of such a wonderful person and ride for an organization that brings opportunity to others in a genuine way is an incredible honor.”

We’d like to thank SRM Training Systems for their support of Amy Dombroski in her career and for continuing that support of Amy’s legacy, the Amy D. Foundation. Also thank you to the Pro’s Closet who, with great attention to detail, is hosting these benefit auctions on behalf of the Amy D. Foundation.
