Pro Ambassador, Director & Co-Founder
Lea and Sabra’s parents threw them into every sport imaginable growing up. Since their mom, Lucia, grew up in pre title IX world where the only opportunity was cheerleading (and you better believe she was the best at that), she wanted to give them every opportunity possible. So the competitive seeds were planted with sports from downhill ski racing and cross-country running to swim team (that didn’t last for long) and windsurfing. It was in high school that Davison was introduced to mountain biking, and it was love at first ride. She jumped immediately into racing at the local level and then, while competing in her first national races, realized two important things. She could be a professional mountain biker for a living and that mountain biking was an Olympic sport. From that moment, her sights were set squarely on making those two things happen. Fast forward twenty years and she’s done exactly that. She’s competed in two Olympics (11th place in London and 7th place in Rio) and also won two World Championships medals in 2014 and 2016.
Lea Davison's professional racing career gained huge momentum in 2011 when she signed with Specialized Racing. She won the 2011 USA Mountain Bike National Championships for Super D, and continued the success in 2012, earning the Short Track title at the 2012 USA Mountain Bike National Championships. She hat-tricked, in 2013, with both the 2013 USA Mountain Bike National Championships titles for short track and cross country. In 2012, Lea earned a spot at the Olympic Games in London where she placed 11th. Her 2X Olympian status is marked by her second Olympic appearance in Rio where she finished 7th. Her other career highlights include: Bronze Medal at the 2014 World Championships, 3rd overall in the 2015 World Cup series, and Silver Medal at the 2016 World Championships.
