Kristin Armstrong will defend her gold medal in the women's time trial, and former track cycling star Taylor Phinney will realize his Olympic dreams on the road at the London Games. Armstrong and Phinney were among the 21 riders announced by USA Cycling for the Summer Olympics on Friday. The remaining three riders on the 24-rider team will be decided Saturday, when the BMX trials are held in Chula Vista, Calif. Phinney will ride the time trial and road race for the U.S., and will be joined on the road team by Timmy Duggan, Chris Horner, Tejay Van Garderen and sprinter Tyler Farrar. Olympic veterans Levi Leipheimer and George Hincapie were passed over for the squad. There were no major surprises on the mountain bike and track cycling teams.
