BIOGRAPHY

Kristin Armstrong is the most decorated U.S. women's cyclist of all time and the best time-trialist in sports history. She is a three-time Olympic Gold Medalist, two-time World Champion and has won six U.S. National Championships.

Additionally, Kristin became the oldest female cyclist in history to win an Olympic medal when she won gold in Rio, one day before her 43rd birthday.

She spends her free time on public speaking engagements and serves as the Manager of Community Health for St. Luke’s in Boise, Idaho.
