Biography

American professional cyclist, who competed in cyclocross, road, and mountain bike racing. An American National Champion in Road (2009 U23), Cyclocross (2010, 2012, 2013), and Mountain Bike (2009), Dombroski also competed internationally, representing the United States at UCI World Championship Cyclocross, UCI World Cup Cyclocross, and UCI World Championship Cross Country Mountain Biking (2009 U23) events.

Dombroski's nickname "Cross Diva" stems from a disagreement regarding the mandatory use of sponsored equipment, as well as Dombroski's petite stature and efforts to promote gender equality for cyclists' pay.

Dombroski died on 3 October 2013 at age 26 after she was struck by a truck during a moto-paced training ride in Belgium. Following her death, Dombroski's brother Dan Dombroski and sister-in-law Nicole Novembre established the Amy D. Foundation, a nonprofit organization with a mission to empower young women through cycling.
