Genevieve Jeanson Interview

After we received confirmation that Genevieve Jeanson would not been attending the Road Worlds due to tendinitis, we were able to set up a brief telephone interview with her, from her home in Lachine, Quebec.

While the first the cycling community heard about Jeanson's injury was when she pulled out of the GP Feminin at the end of August (see Daily News, August 25/01 3:30 pm posting), the injury has it's roots back in the pre-season.

"It was a gradual thing. Even in March my tendon would get sore, but it would go away. I was training much more this year, so I thought it was just from all the extra work I was doing."

The cause was simple: new pedals.

"I changed pedals this year - to Time from Look. Something about the new ones is not good with my pedalling style and put stress on my leg. We spoke to Dr Andy Pruitt in Colorado and he said that he had seen this sort of thing happen before. So, I am going back to my old pedals for next year."

Originally, the expectation was that with a few weeks off the bike Jeanson would be able to resume training and racing, but it turned out to be more serious than expected.

"It has not been going well. I didn't stop training, I just didn't do any biking. I was running, doing weights, rollerblading - so I was in good shape. Then after 2 weeks I started biking again, but not pushing. It was last week that I was testing (my leg) by going hard, and it came back right away.

I am very disappointed, because I knew that this year I had a very good chance in Lisbon. The course is very hard, with lots of climbing and was good for me. I could have tried, but the injury could have (become) much worse. It is more important to think of the future than just 1 year."

Despite the disappointment, Jeanson still calls the season a success.

"It has been a good season for me. I raced more than in earlier years, and I learned a lot. It was good. With the team (Team Rona) it was awesome. I had fun with the girls, and for sure next year (we) will have a team."

For now, the plan is rehabilitation and planning for next year.

"Maybe next year a big Tour like l'Aude, but we have to sit down and look at the program. The plan right now is no bike for 4 weeks, but I can keep training in other ways. After the new year I will go down south again, it is the best for training."
