Template:Infobox Cyclist

Judith Arndt (born July 23, 1976 in Königs Wusterhausen) is a German professional cyclist who races for the T-Mobile Women cycling team. She enjoyed early success, winning the Bronze Medal in the 3000 m pursuit event at the 1996 Summer Olympics when she was just 20 years old. Later on, she proved to be one of the best female cyclists in the world. In 2004 she not only won the World Road Race Championship, but also gained the Olympic Silver Medal in the road race.

Profile – CareerEdit

Moving from Track to Road RacingEdit

Experienced in both track and road racing, Judith Arndt has developed into a real 'allrounder': After her early successes winning the individual pursuit four times at the national level and the Olympic Bronze in the same competition, her career as a track specialist seemed to be indicated. But a viral infection during the 2000 Summer Olympics – causing a disappointing outcome for Judith – marked the turning point in her career.

In the space of just two years she finished third in the Grande Boucle (sometimes referred to as the "women's Tour de France)" in 2003, won the Tour de l'Aude twice (2002 and 2003), and added a Silver Medal in the road time trial at the 2003 World Road Race Championships in Hamilton, Ontario.

No doubt she was moving towards the climax of her career. At the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece she won the Silver Medal in the road race and, just two weeks later, became World Road Champion at Verona, Italy. She also finished that year in first place in the UCI world ranking.

In 2005 she won the road time trial at the German Road Championships for the sixth time in her career.

A real 'allrounder'Edit

Judith Arndt's main quality is endurance. She is not a sprinter, nevertheless her speed on the last kilometer is remarkable. Experienced in both track and road racing, she really deserves the 'title' allrounder.

Not always 'easy-to-handle'Edit

With growing success Judith also took growing responsibility for her trade and national team respectively. This was not always comfortable for those in charge of forming the national team, especially in the German Cycling Organisation. After her teammate and partner Petra Rossner, a formidable sprinter, was not selected for the Olympic Road Team, Judith criticized this decision which – in her view – diminished the team's chances to win the race. After showing her disgust at the finish line of the race, in which she finished second, she had to apologize for this emotional gesture.

PalmarèsEdit

Note: Beginning in 1997, the Union Cycliste Internationale implemented a points listing whereby points were awarded riders based on their performances in racing events. For this purpose, the races were classified into categories. Although the exact system has evolved over the years, the major stage races are generally classified as category 1 (strongest), and category 2. In the listings below, these categories, where known, are given in parentheses. The abbreviation GC stands for General Classification.
