Canadian Down Under

We received an e-mail from an Australian friend, with an amusing query: I heard from club racing was that they had a couple of gun Canadian riders out, who
were giving our boys some stick in the local handicap race last Sunday morn ... their names are Eric Tourville and George Visser ... do you know them?

Yes, we know them...

Team Announcements

Team Procter & Gamble Women's Health announces its roster for the 2000 Season. Returning as members of the team are co-founders Kori Kelly and Kerry Hellmuth, both of Boulder, CO. New additions to the team include Canadian Heather Cole, returning to North America after turning heads in the European racing scene, veteran racer Cheryl Binney of San Francisco, renowned collegiate power Mina Pizzini of Philadephia, and sprinter Ashley McCullough of Kingsfield, California.

Joining Hellmuth and Kelly on this year's team is Heather Cole of Ontario, Canada. Cole raced most of '98 and '99 in Europe and as a member of the Canadian National Team. In 1999 she won the Fleche Gascon Midi Pyrenees and placed in the top 20 in 7 stages of the Grande Boucle Feminine (Women's Tour de France). For Cole the team offers an opportunity to bring her hard earned experience back home: "After three seasons of racing in Europe, I find myself wanting to ride for a team in North America, as I feel my experience can be a valuable asset".

For the 4th year in succession, ELITA Lingerie of Montreal QC., is proud to underline its support of the ELITA Professional Women‚s Cycling Team. For 2000, Team ELITA has been reinforced with the addition of multiple US National and 1999 PAN American Champion Karen Dunne, of Colorado Springs CO.

As of January 1st 2000, Karen was one of 4 American women long listed for the Sydney Games.

Leading the team for their 3rd and 4th seasons respectively will be Canadian‚s Kim Davidge and Annie Gariepy. Kim will be returning to Team ELITA as captain for the 3rd consecutive year, and has recently married.
