Biography

Nine times an American National Champion, Jeanne Golay is unquestionably a Hall of Famer.  Golay is the last American woman to win three National Road titles at one event, a feat she completed in 1992 in Altoona, PA when she won the road race, time trial and team trial events.

Golay raced for the U.S. at the 1992 and 1996 Olympics, and was an alternate in 1988. She placed 6th in the 1992 Road Race in Barcelona and became the first American woman to ride three events in a single Olympics: Road Race, Time Trial, and Points Race at the 1996 Atlanta Games.

Golay won the Pan Am Games Road Race and Team Time Trial in 1991, returning to win the Road Race again in 1995. Finally, Golay won five medals in the World Championships. She enjoyed great success in the Team Time Trials, taking 3rd Place in 1988 (Ghent, Belgium), 1st Place in 1992 (Benidorm, Spain), 2nd Place in 1993 (Oslo, Norway), and 3rd Place in 1994 (Palermo, Italy).  She also raced to an individual 3rd Place finish in the 1994 World Championships Road Race, the most recent American woman to medal in a Worlds Road Race.
