Dotsie Bausch is a former world record holder, eight-time U.S. National Champion on the road and track, and cycling color commentator on television. Bausch was compelled to adopt a compassionate plant-based lifestyle after seeing an exposé about the routine cruelty of factory farming. Dotsie is the founder of Compassion Champs a non-profit organization focused on encouraging and informing athletes and weekend warriors alike that compassion can co-exist with their nutrition plan. Currently Compassion Champs is running a social media campaign called #Xmilk, that calls on all professional athletes to ditch their dairy sponsorships and turn to compassionate plant-based alternatives. Dotsie Bausch, the founder of Compassion Champs is working to connect the athletes who have decided to stand up against the dairy industry with plant-based milk companies.
Dotsie trained for and competed in the Olympics on a plant-based diet! Now retired from professional cycling, she speaks passionately around the world as the voice of farm animals, spreading her message about the numerous benefits – humane, nutritional and environmental – of plant-based eating as a lifestyle choice for athletes and non-athletes alike.  Choose Veg selected Dotsie as one of “The 20 Badass Veg Women Who Are Making History.
