I am racing in 5 events in London but the 500 TT was my focus for the games. This was the event that I won Gold in Beijing in 2008. I spent every weekend I was not racing or at team camp in Atlanta training on the Dicklane velodrome working with my coach Jeff Hopkins on standing starts. We worked on getting a routine and focusing on the countdown of the clock. When my bike was put into the gates and the clock starting count down, I just focused on timing the gate. I executed my start and timing of the gate perfectly. After blasting out of the starting gates, I just rode as hard as I could for 2 laps. I ended up posting the fastest time of the day after my ride but I had to wait until 4 more riders raced. It came down to the very last rider Sarah Storey from Great Britain who had an amazing second lap to win the Gold. I am disappointed I did not win gold but I know that I did everything I could to prepare for the race. I had posted the first lap which was huge because gave me confidence going into my next race the mixed team sprint as lap 1 rider along with sitting a new American record.
