Ottawa, ON – Due to an error on our site this news which was posted last
week did not appear.

The Canadian Cycling Association is pleased to
announce the team that will represent Canada in Track, Road and Mountain
Bike cycling at the upcoming Commonwealth Games in Manchester, UK from
July 25 – August 4.

Earning his spot on the Men’s road team at the Grand Prix de Beauce in
Quebec Tuesday is Gord Fraser. Gord joins the 2001 National Champions Eric
Wohlberg and Mark Walters. In addition, the CCA’s High Performance
committee has selected Mike Barry as the fourth man on the men’s road

On the road representing the women, joining Clara Hughes, Lyne Bessette and
Geneviève Jeanson is Erin Carter of Manitoba. Erin has been racing on the
track and on the road for many years, and her strength in both disciplines
will be an asset to the team.

On the track, Lori-Ann Muenzer is the sole Canadian woman. At the track
trials held in Bromont 2 weeks ago, Jim Fisher, brothers Lars and Steen
Madsen and Tyler Hansen earned their tickets to Manchester.

Finally for mountain bike, the men’s team has Roland Green, Geoff Kabush,
and Seamus McGrath. On the women team, the composition has changed
slightly. Representing Canada will be Kiara Bisaro, winner at the trials,
Chrissy Redden, selected by the High Performance Committee, and Marie
Helene-Premont, also a choice of the High Performance Committee. Premont
replaces Alison Sydor who was pre-selected to the team. Alison made the
tough decision of declining her spot on the Commonwealth Games team. Sydor’s sole objective this season is representing Canada at the World
Championships. Sydor has already represented Canada at both the 1990 and
1994 Commonwealth Games.
