Geneviève Jeanson, the two-time Junior World Champion from Québec, will not compete in the elite women's road race at the 2002 Road World Championships, taking place now in Zolder, Belgium.

Jeanson, of Lachine QC, will be returning home, suffering from a severe case of tendonitis. Canadian Team Manager Luc Arseneau says Jeanson re-injured her Achilles tendon during the elite women's individual time trial on Wednesday. Barely being able to walk Thursday morning, Jeanson spent the day at a hospital in Belgium with UCI doctors examining her. Doctors orders were that she stay off the bike, and not race in the elite women's road race, which takes place Saturday, October 2.

Jeanson has been plagued with this injury all season, which has forced her to drop out of many events, most notably the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester, ENG where she was slated to race in both the individual time trial and the women's road race. Sue Palmer-Komar of Hamilton took her place, winning a silver medal in the road race.

Competing in the elite women's road race on Saturday is Lyne Bessette of Knowlton QC, Sue Palmer-Komar of Hamilton ON and Kathy St. Laurent of Rimouski, QC. The elite men's road race takes place Sunday with Charles Dionne of St. Redompteur racing for Canada.
