Quote from Clara Hughes after winning today's ITT at the Pan Am Championships in Medellín, Colombia

 

"I'm really happy with today's result after beginning to focus on the time trial just 5 weeks ago after the track cycling world championships. I am grateful the national team believed in me enough to give me a spot on the team here and I wanted to give Canada a good result (here). National team Coach Vincent Jourdain and the support staff did everything possible to give us the setting to have our best races and it paid off today. 

I was up against two of the best racers in the world (the Americans) and to come our on top is extremely satisfying and a good indication of my potential in the time trial.  Now I have time to train for the event and I can't wait to put in the work to get stronger.  The bonus is that I qualified a spot for worlds with this victory.  Everything I do in the coming months will be to bring my best to the start line in Denmark and see how I fare against the best racers in the world. "
