Neil Lumsden, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer for the Hamilton 2003 Cycling Championships today announced the appointment of three new staff members to the Organizing Committee. The three individuals are:

* Ed Arzouian, Competition Coordinator
* Janis Cookson, Volunteer Manager
* Laura Zamprogna, Event Operations Manager

Arzouian has been involved in cycling since 1975 as a competitor, organizer and writer. As Hamilton 2003 Competition Coordinator he will work closely with Technical Director Pierre Hutsebaut. Ed was a member of the Quebec Provincial Team from 1984 to 1987, won a bronze medal at the Canadian TTT Road Championships in 1986 and a member of the United States Olympic Development Team from 1985 to 1987. From 1988 to 1993, he was owner and manager for what at the time was Canada's only professional cycling team, Evian and Reynolds/Volkswagen, and Manager of the Shaklee Men's Professional Road Team. Ed was the Director of the Women's World Cup in Montreal and was also involved with the Tour Trans Canada.

Cookson joins the Hamilton 2003 Organizing Committee after serving as Games Director with the 2003 Ontario Winter Games in London, Ontario. She will coordinate the volunteer base, estimated to be between 2,000 and 3,000 people for the Tim Horton Road Nationals Championship and the Road World Cycling Championships. Janis brings to the Cycling Championships nineteen years of experience in event management and sport.

Zamprogna will work closely with Director of Operations Dana Cunningham and Technical Director Pierre Hutsebaut to coordinate many of the logistical details for the event including but not limited to grandstands, tenting and transportation. Laura joins Hamilton 2003 after working in events for the past 10 years with organizations and events such as Skate Canada, 2000 Sydney Olympics, 1996 Atlanta Olympics, 1994 Victoria Commonwealth Games and the Toronto Raptors.

Jim Broomfield Tributes

While on holiday here in BC I was very sad to hear from Ken Smith that my very old friend Jim had passed away. I knew he was not very well but one only hopes for the best.

Jim and I go back many, many years to track racing in London in the late forties and fifties - he raced at Paddington and I at Herne Hill, but we met on the track in competition many times.

As an official in Canada Jim did an excellent job,and eventually became a UCI International Commisaire. We worked at the World Championships and Olympic Games in Montreal and more lately at the Pan American Games in Winnipeg. Jim was a well respected official not only by the organisers but also by the riders, who were always on his mind.

It was an honour to have known and worked with you Jim, and you will always be remembered.

Maurice Jefferies


Jim Broomfield truly had a lifelong passion for the sport of cycling. His interest began at an early age, back in England, where he was encouraged to take up riding by his Father. Jim's growing interest soon led him in the direction of competition on the track and in time trial events. As a junior in the mid 1940's, Jim rode with several London-based clubs where he developed his skills as a rider and formed a number of lasting friendships. He continued his pursuit of cycling as a national serviceman with the Air force.

Jim made the decision to immigrate to Canada in the early 1950's. He quickly re-established is love for cycling and became involved with the group in Delhi. By the early 70's, after 30 odd years on the bike, Jim began a new path in cycling as an official. He was an official in 1974, the last time the Road World Championships we held in Canada. Jim concentrated on the role of starter, and became a fixture at many key events over the years.

During the 80's, Jim qualified as a UCI official and participated in his fair share of international events. Pan Am Games, Commonwealth Games, Canada Games. Jim was also very active as a member of the College of Commissaires helping to shape the technical side of cycling in Canada through much of the eighties.

Through all his years of involvement, Jim always had a special affinity for the developing riders. He had a special rapport with the young riders who genuinely appreciated his steady advice and consistent support. Jim was always willing to give of himself and provided assistance to more than a few Canadian riders who went on to international success.

Jim made many friends in the cycling community. He was well known for having a great sense of humor and an open invitation policy, for anyone connected with cycling, traveling in his neck of the woods; and Jim was certainly a welcome guest in many homes across Canada - and beyond. If you were putting on a race, he always found a way to get there to help out.

Jim touched the lives of many people through a lifetime of involvement in cycling. Always cheerfully, encouraging of others, calm, accommodating, never an unkind word, and always a gentleman. These were the hallmarks of the man. A man loved and respected by many, and a man who will be forever remembered for both his passion and his compassion.

The CCA wishes to express heartfelt condolences to the Broomfield family.
