First, in 2013, then again in 2017, Arley placed in the top 15 in the World Cup competition in The Netherlands, Czech Republic and the United States. She has 22 career wins.

Arley began racing with Fearless Femme Road Team which was founded by Pure Energy Velo, a non-profit organization.

The mission of the team is to race competitively at the elite level while also providing mentorship to the women’s cyclocross community. Despite a full-time legal career and racing schedule, Arley finds time to promote the sport.
