About this Episode
One time trial champion speaks to another! Lisa Brennauer chats with Kristin Armstrong about how she found her passion for cycling when she was just fourteen years old and how her first race went. Spoiler: it didn’t go well.
She calmly dissects her entire career—from the long drives with her family to the National Championships to the teamwork that got her to multiple World Championship wins. She also explains exactly what it feels like to claim those coveted rainbow bands, which she lovingly calls ‘chasing rainbows.’
