American climbing talent Veronica Ewers attended her first-ever group road ride in 2018, showing up on a too-big, hand-me-down Kona Jake the Snake cyclocross bike in leggings and tennis shoes. By the summer of 2021, she stood atop the U.S. Pro Nationals podium with a bronze medal around her neck, and now she's preparing to line up at the women's version of the most recognizable cycling event in the world: The Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift. Meet Veronica Ewers.
