Team Rona Update on Jeanson and Jarvis

Montreal, August 30, 2001 - The news is promising for the two injured members of Team RONA, Amy Jarvis and Geneviève Jeanson:

Amy Jarvis in rehabilitation
Amy Jarvis was seriously injured in the Canadian Time Trial Championships this past July 25. She was riding at full speed when she hit a truck that was crossing the marked cycling lane. She was thrown at a speed of over 40 kph, suffering deep lacerations to the muscles in her right thigh and partially severing the tendon of her quadriceps. The 27 year-old cyclist's leg was in a cast for three weeks, and in a splint for another three weeks. Amy is now walking with crutches and has started a daily rehabilitation and physiotherapy program near her home in the Toronto suburb of Mississauga. She plans to go back to her job as a technical support representative for a major Information Technology company. She is determined to be ready for competition at the beginning of next season.

Geneviève Jeanson: tendinitis
Geneviève Jeanson had to drop out of the Women's International Grand Prix when she couldn't start in the fourth stage, a time trial held in Bedford, Quebec on August 25. She was feeling intense pain behind her right knee during her warm-up exercises. An examination indicated that she had tendinitis in her right semitendinous tendon, the muscle that flexes the leg toward the thigh - a rather useful movement in cycling. Rest and physical treatment should put things right in short order so that Geneviève can get right back into intensive training. In the meantime, the athlete, who turned 20 yesterday, is continuing her training using exercises that don't involve the muscle affected by the inflammation.

Cloutier, vainqueur par la grande porte à Granby

Granby, Québec - 30 août 2001. Participant à sa première course depuis son retour des Championnats panaméricains de cyclisme, Alexandre Cloutier (Volkswagen - Les Ailes) a dominé la première édition de la nocturne de Granby, présentée jeudi soir. Épreuve de type critérium, le peloton devait compléter 35 tours de 1,2 kilomètre.

Après seulement quatre tours de complétés, Martin Nuckle, Martin Gilbert (tous deux de Volkswagen - Les Ailes) et Vincent Caron (André Lalonde sport) se sont échappés du peloton. Quelques instants plus tard, Alexandre Cloutier a été en mesure de rejoindre le trio. Travaillant de manière irréprochable, le quatuor a augmenté son avance, allant même jusqu'à prendre un tour sur le peloton, alors qu'il restait encore 15 tours à la compétition. Toujours agressif, Cloutier a de nouveau quitté le peloton pour revenir sur ce dernier, remportant ainsi aisément la victoire.

" Disons que je me sentais assez bien ", a indiqué le gagnant, visiblement très heureux au bout du fil. " Je savais que j'étais en forme depuis mon retour de Medellín, surtout grâce à ces journées passées en altitude. J'étais ici pour gagner, mais je ne pensais pas gagner de cette façon. "

Martin Gilbert, récent vainqueur des Mardis cyclistes de Lachine, est monté sur la deuxième marche du podium, tandis que son coéquipier Martin Nuckle a remporté la médaille de bronze.

" Notre échappée à quatre s'est très bien déroulée ", a indiqué Nuckle, qui a également vanté la qualité de l'organisation de la course. " Les trois de Volks, nous sommes habitués de travailler ensemble. Vincent Caron a lui aussi pris les relais, ce qui nous a aidés. Quand Alexandre nous a pris un tour, je n'avais plus qu'à surveiller (Vincent) Caron pour m'assurer de terminer parmi les trois premiers. "
