Canada’s Geneviève Jeanson will miss the Commonwealth Games, which will be held in Manchester, Great Britain, from July 25 to August 4, her team announced on Saturday.

The leader of the RONA Cycling Team has a tendonitis behind her left knee. The cause of which is not yet known. Jeanson experienced pain during the last stage of the Hewlett Packard Women’s Challenge, on June 23. The pain then subsided but reappeared during the Fitchburg Longsjo Bicycle Classic the following week.

“I am extremely disappointed by this turn of events,” said Jeanson. “This injury happens at the worst of times, because the Commonwealth Games were one of my objectives for this season. I will now treat my injury as best I can and hope to be competitive for the Canadian Championships.” The Canadian Road Nationals will be held August 8-11 in Oxford County, near London, Ontario.
