    Not sure what to say…i’m a bit worried about her with that kind of “ambitions”.

      Hmmm. Me too. She doesn’t seem too balanced in the basis of this interview at least. Another season of injury and frustration may not be all that surprising. I hope she gets a great coach; one to whom she listens.

        Sounds like a prime candidate for lots of early success followed by a lengthy spell on the sidelines after trying to push through a string of overtraining injuries, like Vos and Ferrand-Prevot. Either that or retirement at 24.

        USAC have the right head coach to handle Dygert, Gary Sutton has plenty of experience with handling this sort of rider.

      Exactly what I was thinking.

    That’s one talented and ambitious young woman!

    That said, road cycling is a sport where even the best will lose more often than they win – particularly for the pro women where there’s a much greater emphasis on one-day racing than the men. Sometimes, riders will be better, or luckier, on the day, and there’s nothing to be done. I hope that she’s able to find enjoyment in the process, not just in the victory that (sometimes) comes at the end of it.

    That custom painted track frame looks a lot more like a road frame…

    >Chloe Dygert (USA) won the gold medal in the Junior women’s time trial and road race in Richmond 2015.

    Photo caption says time trial, a little investigation says, although the first two podiums steps are the same, that’s the podium for the road race. The Polish rider Agnieszka Skalniak got 3rd in the RR, and was not on the podium in the TT.
