Representing your country is a big deal when you go to Worlds!

We are very pleased to know and to have had the chance to work with these three top elite racers who will be going to Worlds: Kristin Armstrong, Lauren Franges, both from TEAm Lipton, and Tina Pic from Colavita-Sutter Home-Cooking. These are some of the top USA racers.

Representing the women's team in the road race will be Kristin Armstrong (Team Lipton), Amber Neben (Flexpoint), Christine Thorburn (Webcor Builders), Mara Abbott (Webcor Builders), Tina Pic (Colavita-Sutter Home-Cooking Light), Lauren Franges (Team Lipton), and Katheryn Curi (Webcor Builders).

All seven women will contest the 172 kilometer road race as the U.S. secured the maximum number of start positions plus an entry for Pic, the current Pan American road race champion.

The U.S. will also have four time trial entries for the elite women's category which are filled by: 1. the defending world champion Armstrong, the current Pan American champion Alison Powers (Colavita-Sutter Home-Cooking Light), Neben, and Thorburn.

What more can we ask for, given the many differing ideas on bike fitting, to get to work with the elite of the elite.

Good luck gals! We wish you the best!
