Bermuda riders Kaden Hopkins, Nic Narraway, Zander Miller, Conor White, Liam Flannery along with Dominique Mayho spent time on the Time Trial course ahead of the UCI Road World Championships, however, the team is short one competitor.
Caitlin Conyers has posted her heartbreaking news on social media that she was unable to travel to Belgium to represent Bermuda at the UCI Road World Championships.
Conyers posted, “As many people will already know, I was meant to represent Bermuda at the Road Cycling World Championships in Belgium this coming week. It was going to be my first time competing at that level, and it felt like things had fallen into place to enable me to go.
On Thursday afternoon, however, I was notified by my doctor that I received a positive result from a Covid-19 test.
Heartbreak is an understatement. After a lot of phone calls and tears, I resigned to the fact that I would be in quarantine until next Friday, and wouldn’t be going to Belgium with the rest of the Bermuda team.
As much as I have spent the last 48hrs grieving what feels like a huge loss, I am very aware that it’s incomparable to what many in our community are going through. My thoughts go out to the healthcare workers that are doing their best to deal with this wave and those with loved ones fighting this disease.
Gratefully, I am healthy, and re-acquainting myself with my indoor trainer.
I will now be watching all of “our boys” (Kaden, Conor, Nic, Zander, and Liam) compete in the World Championships from my quarantine isolation room (aka my Zwift pain cave!), and can’t wait to see what they’re able to do on the world stage!
Wishing them all the absolute best! And hoping they bring me back some pancakes, waffles, and chocolate (the real reason I was going)!!!
Love to everyone that has reached out over the last couple of days, and everyone that has supported me this past year.”
