She was taken to the Intensive Care Unit at the Foothills Medical Centre where she was initially placed under sedation. A big step in Kate’s recovery came this weekend, when she was moved out of the ICU into the neurosciences ward, where her medical monitoring and assessment will continue.

Kate’s friends and teammates have rallied in support of Kate’s family in this difficult time and have put together a journal of all the messages of support that have been sent in from around the world.

Anyone who has a message of support for Kate can send them to Cycling Canada High Performance Director Kris Westwood at <mailto:kris.westwood@cyclingcanada.ca>kris.westwood@cyclingcanada.ca so they can be added to the journal.

Cycling Canada joins the rest of the Canadian cycling community in wishing Kate a speedy and complete recovery.
