Organiser's Press release

Cooke out - Knee injury prevents Nicole Cooke from participating in 'home' World Cup event

The organisers of the UCI Women's Road World Cup, Grand Prix of Wales, Newport, have announced that, due to injury, Commonwealth Champion Nicole Cooke will be unable to participate in the race on 20th August 2005.

Speaking from her home in South Wales, Nicole Cook said "I have been suffering from a recurrent knee injury which required further surgery earlier this month. "This is all immensley frustrating"

"The World Cup in Newport was one of my big target races this season and I am devastated to miss racing in front of my home crowd. I had hoped my knee would recover but the medical advice is that more recouperation time is needed" she said.

Race Organiser Alan Rushton commented "We are naturally very disappointed not to have Nicole with us in the race and send our best wishes for her speedy recovery".

The Newport race, the 8th leg of the World Cup, will make its debut on British Soil when many of the world's leading women's cyclists compete on August 20th in Wales. With Nicole's withdrawal, the British top contenders will now be Rachel Heal (riding for the Great Britain team) and Emma Davis (team Vlaanderen), with strong competition expected from World Cup Champion and current series leader Oenone Wood (team Nurnberger), Olympic Champion Sara Carrigan of Australia (team Tan Van Bemmelen) and World Champion Judith Arndt (team Nurnberger) of Germany.
