2002 Track Worlds Selection
The Canadian Cycling Association is pleased to announce the final selections for the Canadian team that will participate at the Track World Championships in Ballerup, Denmark, September 25-29.
Women Sprint, Keirin, 500m:
Alternate: Laura Yoisten
Women Individual Pursuit:
Women Points Race, Scratch Race:
Note: No men qualified for the World Championships
* Lori-Ann Muenzer will not be able to compete due to recent surgery for appendicitis
** Erin Carter will be unable to compete.
Canada will therefore have only two riders at the Track Worlds - Mandy Poitras and Laura Yoisten. Lori-Ann Muenzer, our strongest medal hope, unfortunately had to have appendix surgery shortly after the Pan Am Championships, ending her season. Erin Carter is also out after picking up a bug in Quito, Ecuador (Pan Ams), and generally being run down after competing at both the Commonwealth Games (3 events) and Pan Am Championships.
