Colorado Springs, Colo. (June 6, 2014) -- A day after seven-time world champion and two-time Olympic silver medalist Sarah Hammer announced she was offering an $800 grant to any 15-16 year-old female who can beat her 2-kilometer time trial national record at the upcoming USA Cycling Juniors Track National Championships, her Olympic teammate on the silver-medal winning women's team pursuit squad, Dotsie Bausch, has stepped forward to sweeten the pot.
 
Bausch announced Friday that she is doubling the generous offer by Hammer, now making the grant total $1600 for any female in the 15-16 age group who can beat Hammer's 2-kilometer time trial national record time of 2:40.40, set in 1999. If more than one rider bests Hammer's record, the winner will be the one with the fastest time.
 
"These fine young women are where our next wave of team pursuiters are going to come from and I want to support and encourage that growth as much as I possibly can," Bausch said.
 
The USA Cycling Juniors Track National Championships will be held in Carson, Calif., June 25-29.
