September 12/01 8:38 am - Worlds Update, BTAC Update, Quebec, Race Cancellation, Ontario

World Championships Update

Our editor has been rescheduled yet again to travel early tomorrow morning! He will arrive at the Team Relay before it ends (fingers crossed), however, we will still be offering live, lap-by-lap coverage from other people on the ground at the race. Coverage starts at approximately 10:00 am EDT, half an hour before the scheduled start of the race itself.

We spoke with Chrissy Redden and she says that the course is 11.5 kilometres, with each member of the team doing one lap. There is lots of climbing, at altitude. The snow that was on the ground earlier in the week is gone, and temperatures are back to 30 degrees C. The melting snow has made traction better, according to Chrissy.

The Canadian team consists of Chrissy Redden (Elite Woman), Roland Green (Elite Man), Ryder Hesjedal (Espoir Man) and Adam Coates (Junior Man). We will not know the order in which they will ride until tomorrow.

One rider who no one has seen arrive yet is defending men's champion Miguel Martinez (France). Martinez had planned to come in just before the cross-country, but that plan has obviously been affected, so it is uncertain whether or not he will make it to the Worlds.

SOUDERTON, PA (Sept. 12, 2001) - Due to the tragedies in New York City and Washington, DC yesterday, the Univest Grand Prix international amateur bicycle race scheduled for Saturday, September 15, 2001 will be postponed. A new date for the event has not been scheduled.

"We feel deep remorse for the victims of yesterday's events, and for their families," said William S. Aichele, President and CEO of Univest Corporation. "We feel it is inappropriate at this time to hold the race, however, plans to reschedule are being considered."

"The Univest Grand Prix is the most prestigious amateur bicycle race in the United States," said John Eustice, race coordinator and owner of Sparta Cycling. "The Univest Grand Prix, with its international field, honors cooperation among nations. We are committed to preserving the spirit of this event." Contestants from the United States, Canada, France, Holland and Belgium were scheduled to participate in this year's event, which travels through numerous townships and boroughs in Montgomery County.
