When Lea Davison crossed the finish line at the 2014 UCI Mountain Bike World Championships in Norway on Saturday, she couldn't believe that only two women had finished in front of her. With a bronze medal around her neck, Davison shared the podium with Catharine Pendrel from Canada and Irina Kalentieva from Russia.

"It still hasn't really sunk in," Davison said via Skype from Norway. "I look at the medal and I'm like, 'Wait, is that mine?'"

It was the 2012 Olympian's first world championship medal - and not an award that she expected. The 31-year-old Vermont mountain biker spent last winter rehabbing her right hip.

"I would have been happy to just simply be back training and racing my bike, but to have a dream season like this after having hip surgery in January and missing the first half of the season, I'm completely thrilled," she said. "I am the happiest girl in Norway."

The Vermont 50 Mountain Bike or Ultra Run was founded in 1993 by Laura Farrell. She is also the Founder of Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports and The Vermont 100 Endurance Run
Vermont 50 is a Proud Supporter of VMBA and STAB
