Tour de Snowy, Australia

This is the first major international women's stage race of the season. Unlike last year, when the field included such names as Genevieve Jeanson, it is a smaller race. This is due primarily to the fact that riders are not using it as part of Olympic qualifying. The only Canadian at this year's race is Annie Gariepy, wearing the colours of her new team.

Note: Stage 1 and 2 winner Anna Millward is not a newcomer; it is the recently married former Anna Wilson.

Foot and Mouth Epidemic Affects Cycling

British Cycling Federation Statement, Tuesday, February 27th:

The British Cycling Federation (BCF) has been advised by MAFF (Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food) to ask all cyclists to avoid trips to the countryside in any form (on foot, on bike or by car) wherever possible, even if the intended journey is restricted to roads. MAFF have pointed out that this is a request and that they cannot currently enforce it in any way. However, in view of the seriousness of the situation, the British Cycling Federation urges all cyclists to follow MAFF's advice.

The implications of the current Foot and Mouth outbreak are clearly serious for cycling in virtually every form and for cycle sport in particular. With the Road and Mountain bike seasons getting underway, we are monitoring the situation very carefully and will be in regular touch with MAFF.
