Finally, former CRCA member, Evelyn Stevens played an active role in the Team USA effort in the July 29th women’s road race at the 2012 London Olympics, attacking and helping to place her teammate, Shelley Olds, into the winning move of the race and then working hard in the chase when a flat tire took Olds out of the move. Reflecting back on the race in an interview for a story in Cycling News (link is here), she said, “We raced really aggressively. I thought the US was a big part of the race today. I attacked after the second time up Box Hill. Emma and I were off the front and Vos and Shelley were in the move. For me, I thought, ‘This is perfect. Shelley’s there, this is what we want.’ Unfortunately, she got a flat tire, so she dropped out of the break. So, we had to start attacking and chasing.”
