As a jock since childhood and a formerly nationally ranked saber fencer, I love stories about female athletes.
Evelyn Stevens, who’s been working on Wall Street for an investment fund, is a young woman now considered one in a million with her newfound aptitude and talent for competitive cycling.

The photo here is of her recently winning the Tour of the Battenkill, the country’s largest one-day sanctioned race.
A former collegiate tennis player at Dartmouth, she’s been cycling competitively less than a year.
