Skylar Schneider earned the gold medal for the United States in the women’s road race at the Pan American Road Continental Championships in Panama on Saturday.
Schneider formed part of a five-rider team that also included Kaia Schmid, Zoe Ta-Perez, Lauren Stephens and Amber Neben.
Neben had already earned a gold medal for Team USA in the women’s time trial held on Tuesday and went on to finish 50th in the road race after supporting Schneider to the win.
Schneider won the bunch sprint in the elite women’s 102km road race held across seven laps of a circuit in Panama City.
Chile’s Catalina Anais Soto earned the bronze medal after finishing third in the sprint.
The Continental Championships is an important qualifier for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.
There are only 88 places for the men’s and women’s road races, and allocations are based on the UCI Road World Ranking by nations for the year before the Olympic Games.
