Kristin Armstrong Biography
Kristin Armstrong was born August 11, 1973, in Memphis, Tennessee and is a professional road bicycle racer and Olympic gold medalist, the winner of the Women's Time Trial at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. Before temporarily retiring to start a family in 2009, she rode for Cervlo TestTeam in women's elite professional events on the National Racing Calendar (NRC) and UCI Women's World Cup. She announced a return to competitive cycling beginning in the 2011 season, competing for Peanut Butter & Co. TWENTY12 at the Redlands Classic.
Armstrong announced at the end of 2010 that she will return to competitive cycling, with a possible goal of competing in the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London. In a written statement, she stated that her retirement was merely temporary in order to start a family. I love cycling and I love competing. I stopped racing after the 2009 World Championships not because I was burned out, but because my husband and I wanted to start a family, said Kristin Armstrong. I told myself from the beginning if everything went smoothly with the birth of our son, Lucas William, I would consider racing again. Armstrong will be competing on a team she is a part owner of, Peanut Butter & Co. Team TWENTY12.
In 2011, Armstrong did indeed return with Peanut Butter & Co. Team TWENTY12. She won three of the four stages (criterium, road race and time trial) and the overall title during the Sea Otter Classic in April. However, during the first stage of the Tour of the Gila, which she had won twice previously, Armstrong came down with food poisoning. She ended up withdrawing from the race and returning home to recover.
She won a gold medal in the 2012 London Olympics in the individual time trial.
