USA gets two in the Top Five in 10th Women's Flèche Wallonne, Belgium

Good results still coming from Belgium!

Olympic hopefuls are dying to represent the USA in the 2008 Beijing Games, which means UCI points. The racing is hard core!

Just about a month ago Kristin learned that she was to replace her TEAmmate, TEAm Lipton's Kori Seehaffer. Kori had earned a spot to race for the US, however she broke a collar bone just before the end of a race. At that time, Kristin was beating most of the Cat 1 men pro here in Boise, ID. She was working hard for the upcoming season. She had her knee cleaned up a bit!

It looks like TEAm Lipton's Kristin Armstrong is almost back, as she took a 5th place, just behind Amber Neben. A super showing for the USA to place two gals in the top five! She is not 100%, so this is a super result and shows how good she really is.

Kristin sent an email to us saying that she will be back May 7th, as we have a new pair of custom shoes waiting for her.
