Zack Allison

Road, Gravel, MTB, CX, Bike Fitting


Zack earned his bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science at Colorado State University. As part of his education, he participated in many hands on exercise science practicum and internships, coaching many types of athletes, specifically cyclists.

Zack’s affinity for cycling started at the early age of 14 racing on the east coast. He quickly moved up the amateur ranks to race on the elite national circuit. This level of competition sparked his interest in exercise science, taking him to Colorado State University. While racing for his alma-mater and on various elite and professional teams he saw many podiums at the Collegiate Championships and Pro/Am events. Zack is currently living in Fort Collins, Colorado, and has raced for Elevate Pro Cycling, Team Clif Bar and currently races for Bike Sports on the road and gravel circuit.

While riding and living in Fort Collins Colorado for the last 10 years, Zack explored all the regional roads and soon realized that gravel roads are the baseline and pavement is a luxury, and not one we need. Riding gravel before it was “a thing” prepared Zack for all the gravel events races and camps that he supplements his road race with today.

Now Zack coaches and races full time. With a mixed calendar between the biggest road races in the United States and the large gravel events. Zack also promotes camps and clinics all over the US and promotes FoCo FondoFest in Fort Collins, Colorado.
