Leah Thomas (Trek-Segafredo) scorched the 23.2km course and won the US national women’s time trial title. Four-time U.S. time trial champion Amber Neben repeated as the silver medalist, 44 seconds off the winning pace of 29:38. A surprise among the 27 riders in the peloton was 20-year-old Zoe Ta-Perez (LUX-CTS p/b Specialized), who retained bronze.

Thomas was the only runner to go under the 30-minute mark for the two full laps along the shores of Lake Melton on a familiar flat 11.6 km course. 2021 silver medalist Neben was the last rider on the course, but couldn’t make up enough time, leaving Thomas to relish the first national title of her career.

“It’s really great. I worked hard in time trials and finished third here many, many times in a row and didn’t really succeed,” Thomas said after the finish. “Really what I was trying to focus on to do my best time trial. I can’t control how fast someone else is going. I think I made it PR by something like 40 seconds, so I was really happy with my effort. This one is really special and I’m really really happy.

Lauren Stephens (EF Education-TIBCO-SVB) recorded the fastest split time in the first of three waves of runners, clocking 15:54. Once the last wave followed the course, the split time kept dropping, with Thomas completing the single lap under 15 minutes, clocking a time 19 seconds faster than Neben.

With her third-place finish overall, Ta-Perez also earned U23 honors on the women’s side. She rode a solid run that was well ahead of a trio of EF Education-TIBCO-SVB riders – Stephens, who was fourth at 27 seconds behind the youngster, Veronica Ewers and Emily Newsom.

“Oh my God, that’s amazing,” said Ta-Perez, after accepting a star-studded jersey as the best U23 woman in the TT and wearing an elite ranking bronze medal. “My only focus, really, was to focus on the execution today and it’s amazing when everything goes to plan.”

Ta-Perez last raced at the US Nationals in 2019 when she won the junior time trial crown and finished seventh in the junior TT at the world championships in Yorkshire that year.

A third of the peloton was made up of riders from two teams – LUX-CTS p/b Specialized fielded five riders in the time trial, and EF Education-TIBCO-SVB fielded four riders. Four of the five LUX riders were eligible for the U23 division.
