Professional Cyclist, Alison Tetrick, Joins Hydro Flask Ambassador Team
Tetrick relies on Hydro Flask for hydration and recovery on training and racing days
BEND, Ore. – July 8, 2014 – Hydro Flask, the award-winning leader in high-performance, insulated stainless steel flasks, recently launched an Ambassador Program, featuring a diverse, carefully chosen set of representatives that embodies the spirit of the brand. This month, Hydro Flask is proud to spotlight its Cycling Ambassador: Alison Tetrick.
Alison Tetrick is a professional cyclist for Twenty16 Pro Cycling and a graduate student in neuropsychology at Palo Alto University. She played collegiate tennis and was an NCAA All-American Scholar Athlete before immersing herself in the world of cycling. Tetrick was encouraged to try bike racing by her 84-year-old grandfather, who is still racing himself. She has been a member of the USA National Team and is the professional female athlete representative for USA Cycling. Living in Petaluma, Calif., her favorite training roads are in West Marin.

“Keeping fluids at the optimal temperature is very important. I use Hydro Flask to keep my coffee toasty in the wee hours before training or racing and it’s still warm if I’m in the mood for some more afterwards,” said Alison Tetrick. “I also love the food flasks for smoothies and recovery drinks upon finishing. Recovery is as important as training, so preparing something ahead of time that will stay cool or warm until I am ready for it is pivotal to my recovery.”
Alison’s “Top 5 Accessories for Cycling:”
- “Road ID – I never take it off because safety is important and it gives my loved ones peace of mind.”
- “Hydro Flask insulated water bottle because sometimes you want your beverage to stay warm, and sometimes you want it to stay cool.”
- “Insulated Hydro Flask food flask for smoothies or my morning grits”
- “My Felt bicycle is my best friend, even though we don’t always play nice, we have a good relationship.”
- “My Oakley Radar XL’s with photochromatic lenses for those days when the sun comes and goes.”

“Alison is a great example of an Ambassador who has integrated Hydro Flask into her everyday routine in order to stay fueled up and hydrated – the 18 oz for coffee in the early morning, the 40 oz for all-day hydration and the food flasks for smoothies and post-race recovery drinks,” said Scott Allan, CEO of Hydro Flask.
About the Ambassador Program
The Hydro Flask ambassadors are more than just professional athletes and craftspeople who happen to use Hydro Flask products – they are people who are passionate about their sport or trade, their Hydro Flask(s) and their community. The ambassadors span veteran professionals to up-and-coming athletes in the realms of skiing, snowboarding, ultra running, yoga, rock climbing, canoe sailing, stand up paddle boarding, cycling, and cross-fit. Additionally, the ambassador team includes craftspeople that bring passion and a pursuit of perfection to their trade, such as coffee roasting and craft brewing.
