Apparently the injury is a hyper extended knee. Ryder is getting physiotherapy and has been able to ride his bike again yesterday (Monday, September 15th). According to his father it is uncertain at this time wether he will be able to compete in the junior World's cross country event scheduled for Friday, September 19 in Switzerland. Ryder, just coming off a 4th place World Cup finish in France was one of the better medal prospects for Canada. Good Luck Ryder and a speedy recovery.

RICHARD, Pascal SUI CASINO 6:02 Politics at the Ontario Cycling Association We were recently informed by Chuck Bonnaffon (editor of the Ontario road racing newsletter) that he had been fired, and there was much controversy going on in Ontario road racing. This sort of news enters a gray area for us: is it news, or is it internal politics within a provincial association? Those involved will be passionately interested in the goings on - the rest couldn‚t care. Therefore, we have decided not to air Mr Bonnaffon‚s concerns here (nor the responses of the Ontario Racing Committee). Instead, we will direct you to his website, and you can decide if this topic is of interest to you. The address is:
