Les Herbiers, France Kristin Armstrong of the Peanut Butter & Co. - Twenty12 team finished a close second in the Chrono des Nations Time Trial in France Sunday. Armstrong, the current defending Olympic champion in the time trial, posted a time of 28:07 on her Felt DA TT bike, 9 seconds off the winning mark set by a fellow American rider Amber Neben.

Armstrong returned to the sport earlier this year after taking nearly two years off to start a family. She retired after winning gold at the 2009 TT World Championship. Shortly after the birth of her son in 2010 she announced she would return to competition. Now 38, Armstrong is focused on trying to qualify for next summer’s Olympic Games in London.
