Orion Racing is excited to welcome Alison Merner (@ammerner) to the team! 


Alison is known for her fearless cornering and enthusiasm for suffering (a practiced joy honed through years of swimming and running — though never at the same time). She started racing on the road in 2016, a year after buying her first road bike, and quickly fell in love with the energy, strategy and community of the sport. A year later, she stumbled into a velodrome and hasn’t stopped turning left since.


While she has competed in a wide range of disciplines, Alison has a deep passion for criterium racing. A four-time crit champion in her home state of NY, she has spent the last two seasons pushing limits and building experience in the P/1/2 peloton and is excited to line up with Orion at some of the most storied events on the calendar in 2023. 


When not ripping corners on a bicycle, she is most likely found writing, drinking coffee, and hanging out with her cats Jack and Sally. She really wants to be friends with your dog. Welcome, Alison!
