Kate crashed during a motor pacing session at the Glenmore Velodrome in Calgary on Monday, June 24th. She remains in the intensive care unit at Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary, but she has been improving daily and the pressure on her brain has reduced to normal levels. She is responding to family and medical staff and no longer requiring any sedation. While her neurologic tests continue to be positive, Kate is still being monitored closely.

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 would like to send a message of support to Kate can send them to Cycling Canada High Performance Director Kris Westwood at kris.westwood@cyclingcanada.ca so they can be added to the journal.
