Team Colavita

Erica Allar


Erica Allar joins Colavita/Fine Cooking as the leader of the domestic women’s peloton, capturing the National Criterium Calendar (NCC) and USA CRITS Series Individual Championship titles in 2013.  She also took silver in the Mass Start Track Nationals Scratch Race and the Time Nationals Team Pursuit.

Watching races at the local velodrome with her dad in her home state of Pennsylvania, Erica started out competing on the track. She switched to road racing in 2007 and won her first national title at the Under 23 National Criterium Championships.  The next year, she turned pro, earned her second U23 National Criterium Championship title, and graduated from Penn State University with a BA in Letters, Arts and Sciences.

Erica currently resides in Tucson, AZ.  When she’s not training or racing, Erica works with CARE for Cycling to promote the health benefits of cycling as well as safety measures through school visits.  She counts pizza and lasagna among her favorite Italian dishes.
