THE stream of honours just continues to flow for Warrnambool's most successful cyclist - Michelle Ferris.
The 42-year-old was inducted into Cycling Victoria's Hall of Fame at the Maillot Jaune Club presentation on Wednesday.
It comes after the successful track cyclist became the fourth female to be inducted into Cycling Australia Hall of Fame in November.
At 19 years of age, at the 1996 Summer Games in Atlanta, Ferris won silver in the women's sprint before backing it up in 2000 in Sydney, where she won another silver medal in the 500-metre time trial.
As well as her Olympic and world championship medals, she won 16 Australian titles.
Back in November Ferris told The Standard living in the country did not impact how her career would turn out.
"I guess some people think they are limited for living in country towns but I never found that was a hindrance to me," she said.
"I remember sometimes getting the train up to Melbourne to get to training sessions or staying with friends to have the opportunity to race and train in the places where everyone was.
"And my mum and dad would travel around and take me to places so I had every opportunity.
"It is a few hours travelling but why not, you never know what could happen."
The now Sydney-based Ferris raced as a professional for 15 years before retiring.
