Born and raised in the Poconos, Arley Kemmerer has been an elite athlete for about as long as she could walk. Spending the early years of her life on skis through high school and into college, Arley was a Division I collegiate athlete in downhill ski racing.

Kemmerer found cycling after suffering a stress fracture in college and never looked back. Arley has come up through the ranks from local to international World Cup level racing in cyclocross to placing top 20 in international competition. Her skill and devotion is matched only by her determination to achieve all she can while supporting the growth of others in her beloved sport. Racing a full UCI calendar and working full time as an attorney, Kemmerer never slows down, or at least not until the offseason.
