November 20/05 11:04 am - Forest City Velodrome: Ontario Cup #2: report, results and standings

Posted by Editoress on 11/20/05

Forest City Velodrome

The past 10 days have been "Over the Top" in more ways I can tell you ... From the high of receiving our Trillium Grant, to the low of tending to one of our up and coming riders after crashing, during what was suppose to be a fun Madison, in front of one of largest crowds of the season.

In the last 5 laps of the 30 minute Madison, an exchange between teammates Vince Dejong & Adam Thuss went terribly wrong. Exact details are still being analyzed but, the end result was that Adam was sent over the handlebars landing face first on the track. The impact caused Adam to lose a tooth and receive extensive track rash to his face but luckily no broken bones.

I spoke with Adam's Dad this afternoon. He was released from the hospital and was able to walk to the car for the long ride home. Adam was in good spirits considering the impact. During the check up, Adam had to provide a urine sample. He asked the nurse if she needed "A" and "B" samples ..... both samples apparently came back negative.

Earlier in the evening, Bermuda when down on the last lap of the Points race. The rider causing the crash was DQ'd from the race. The race committee is looking at further sanctions. A decision will be made by Wednesday.

On a happier note, the racing on Saturday night was a Fundraising event for the London "Italian Seniors Project". The large crowd was thoroughly entertained with a wide variety of track racing. We are still counting the admissions and it looks like over $1,000.00 will go to the Project. A Big thank you to all the Volunteers who made the entire day flow so easily.

I am also pleased to announce that the Ontario Trillium Foundation has been able to provide funding to the Forest City Velodrome. The grant will be used for operations, camps for women & young racers. The grant was not as much as we applied for, but it will go a long way in supporting the Velodrome. Thanks to everyone who helped out with the grant application, and to the volunteers that make our Velodrome operate so efficiently.

Get Well Adam & Bermuda ... we hope to see you at the track soon.

Yours in Sport rg
