The United States Olympic Committee selected track cyclist Sarah Hammer as its female Athlete of the Month for December. Hammer, a two-time World Champion and Felt-sponsored rider, collected gold and silver medals at the UCI Track Cycling World Cup in Cali, Colombia, in December.

Hammer, who recently moved to Switzerland to live and train at the UCI World Cycling Center, clocked the third-fastest time ever in the 3-kilometer individual pursuit competition in Colombia. In addition, she joined teammates Dotsie Bausch and Lauren Tamayo to take silver in the team pursuit.

Congratulations, Sarah!
