She raced the road race both years, and in 1996 also competed in the individual time trial and the track points race. Golay won the road race at the 1991 and 1995 Pan American Games, also winning gold in the team time trial in 1991. At the World Championships Golay won a bronze in the 1994 road race, and won four medals in team trials – gold in 1992, silver in 1993, and bronzes in 1988 and 1994. She was a nine-time US Champion.
