Career[edit]

Early years[edit]

Born in Marshall, Virginia, United States, Dombrowski began competitive mountain biking at a young age, but in the following years, progressed to road racing. In 2011, Dombrowski signed with Trek-Livestrong.[3] During his third and final season with the renamed Bontrager-Livestrong squad, a string of successes pinned Dombrowski as a bright talent.[4] Most notably, Dombrowski finished tenth at the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, competing against notable American cyclists, like Christian Vande Velde, Tejay van Garderen, and Levi Leipheimer.[5]

Team Sky: 2013–present[edit]

In 2013, Dombrowski signed with UCI ProTeam Team Sky for the 2013 and 2014 seasons.[6][7] During the 2013 season, Dombrowski assisted team-mate Chris Froome to success in multi-stage races.[8][9] During the 2014 season, Dombrowski underwent successful artery surgery.[10]

Personal life[edit]

During the season, Dombrowski resides in Nice, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France.[11] However, when stateside, he returns to Marshall, Virginia.[12][13] While riding in the amateur ranks, Dombrowski attended George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.[12]
