And after a crazy four years in between then and now, including immediately winning the world championship and staying on target the first part of 2009 to two years of struggles and not having full seasons back-to-back years because of three surgeries involving plates, screws, and a skin graft, a broken shoulder and one torn adductor, I recovered in 2011 with a solid season.
Things also went according to plan this spring, and now, I have been named to the team. I have another chance to go for gold… to really GO FOR GOLD… to help TEAM USA in the road race and to go for it in the TT. Unbelievable. But believable. Can you tell I am excited?!!!"
Women’s road cycling:
Kristin Armstrong (Exergy TWENTY 12) – road race & time trial
Amber Neben (Specialized-lululemon) – road race & time trial
Shelley Olds (AA Drink - Leontien.nl Cycling Team)
Evelyn Stevens (Specialized-lululemon)
I really feel for Megan Guarnier, not getting a spot - but I suppose, even though she hasn’t been racing internationally, Armstrong would always get the place, as she won the ITT 4 years ago. Glad Olds is going, though - she really deserves it.
