Elle hails from Stowe, Vermont where she grew up in a family of athletes: A former professional ski racer for a mom and a cyclist and skier for a dad. After success as a junior ski racer, a series of knee injuries caused her to turn to cycling in 2008. Studying at Dartmouth College, Elle soon after discovered cyclocross through the collegiate cycling team. Elle joined her first pro team in 2013 while living in San Francisco, California and working full-time for Strava. Once she experienced the thrills of the European cyclocross circuit later that year, she decided to base herself out of Belgium for the subsequent four seasons. Now racing for Milwaukee – Alpha Motorhomes and representing the US National Team, Elle lives and races full time out of Oostende, Belgium.
