Instantly recognizable by her long braid, Inga Thompson burst onto the US women’s cycling scene in 1984. Within a few months, she found herself competing in the Los Angeles Games – her first of three Olympics. A 10-time National champion and two-time podium finisher at the Women’s Tour de France, Inga’s impact, influence, and advocacy for women’s cycling continues to this day.
Founded in 2017, the Inga Thompson Foundation is a 501 3c non-profit organization that supports competitive women cyclists through meaningful financial assistance, while promoting ethical, drug-free competition in all sports.
The Inga Thompson Foundation believes women should have the same opportunity to succeed in cycling as their male counterparts. Our mission is to support competitive woman cyclists financially and allow them the freedom to pursue athletic excellence.
