Armstrong Wins Worlds TT

Yes, an American named Armstrong won the World TT Championship, but it's not the Armstrong you might be thinking about. Kristin Armstrong beat a field of top international pros to win the women's TT World Championship today. Armstrong led a strong American team that placed three women in the top 10 in the race. Shades of David Millar in the Tour prologue, Armstrong dropped her chain on a climb and lost nearly 10 seconds, but she recovered and won the TT by nearly 26 seconds over Karin Thurig of Switzerland. Christine Thorburn of the US took the bronze. Nicely done!
