Dundas resident Denise Ramsden finished 19th in the Olympic women’s cycling time trial, Wednesday, about four minutes behind the gold medal winner.

In a pre-Olympic interview at Domestique Café, the Downtown Dundas coffee shop where she works part-time, Ramsden said the Olympic individual time trial would be the longest one she’s ever competed in.

“29km of pain in the plan for today,” 21-year-old Ramsden tweeted Wednesday morning before the time trial event.

She finished the course in a time of 41 minutes and 44.81 seconds. Veteran Canadian Olympian Clara Hughes finished fifth in a time of 38 minutes and 28.96 seconds.

Kristin Armstrong of the United States rode the fastest time of the day (37 minutes and 34.82 seconds) to take the gold medal.

A total of 24 cyclists competed in the women’s time trial.
