When she was 27, Evie Stevens ’05 gave up her career on Wall Street to become a professional cyclist.  Now, just two years later, she has established herself as one of the country’s top cyclists and is preparing to compete in the upcoming 2012 Olympic Games in London, reports the Associated Press via The Washington Post.

The article chronicles Stevens' journey and the cycling achievements that have lead her to the London Games. “I think if you’re passionate about anything you do, you can be successful,” Stevens told the AP. “I think I was fortunate to have a lot of experiences after I found the bike. I knew I wanted to be as good as I possibly can.”
