A huge congratulations to Leah Thorvilson of Little Rock, Arkansas who has landed a pro contract with the Canyon//SRAM racing pro women’s team as the winner of the first-ever Zwift Academy.

“Prior to Zwift Academy, I never would have guessed this was possible. [Finalists] Jessie and Yvonne are tremendous athletes whom I now consider close friends. I’m so grateful for the opportunity, and I can’t wait to begin this next chapter with the Canyon-SRAM Racing team.”

Leah was a national-level runner who turned to cycling only recently (her first ride was July 2, 2015). Read about Leah’s journey here >
