Although the onetime Seattle wunderkind has devoted the year to winning a gold medal, "I don't think she knows what she is going to do when she quits racing," said her father, David Twigg of Federal Way. Twigg only knows that this deep-rooted affinity for spirituality will lead her beyond the spokes and gears and aerodynamics of cycling.
The Olympics, where she will race in the 3,meter pursuit on the track and the individual time trial on the road, are simply a way station to greater fulfillment.
Cast down on heaven Cast down on my knees. Harvey Two years ago, Twigg was hurting. Not from the muscle-aching, lung-bursting pursuit of cutting milliseconds while pedaling around a velodrome, but from a broken heart.
After a relationship ended badly, Twigg felt as if something was broken inside. At 31, after living more than half her life on her own, she was lost. Twigg began reading Paramhansa Yogananda's "Autobiography of a Yogi" and pondering life's monumental questions. About the same time, she talked to her younger sister, Laura Pucher of Kirkland, about the breakup. A born-again Christian, Pucher prayed for Twigg.
Then they prayed together over the telephone. Maybe it is meditation. I don't really know what it is. Pucher had tried many times to convert her sister to Christianity, but Twigg was not receptive. Now they were drawn closer for the first time in years.

To be unmasked, it has no choice. It will roll in ecstasy at your feet. During training, only one rider usually uses the track to avoid collisions. For some reason, the coach, Craig Griffin, did not realize Twigg still was riding. Twigg steered her sleek bicycle to the track's perimeter, but there was no room to get around them.
So, she slightly swerved in the other direction and partially hit Griffin. In an instant, the United States' powerful pursuit team was sprawled across the track in a tangle of bodies and bikes.
Twigg suffered a broken collarbone, Griffin a bruised leg. Quigley escaped serious injury.
The accident occurred 11 days before the world championships in Bogota, Colombia. It usually takes six to eight weeks to recover from a broken collarbone, but Twigg was determined to visit South America. The night of the accident, a surgeon inserted seven screws and a titanium plate to hold the collarbone together, and removed some bone chips.
Then Twigg caught a terrible cold. Still, she trained on a stationary bicycle until the world championships, where she illustrated the qualities that make her formidable. In qualifying, Antonella Bellutti of Italy broke Twigg's world record in the pursuit. A few minutes later, Marion Clignet of France surpassed Bellutti's mark.
Undaunted, Twigg advanced to the final where she defeated Bellutti in world-record time: This article needs additional citations for verification.
