Champion Xterra racer Jamie Whitmore us facing her toughest battle yet. On Friday, February 29, Whitmore entered the University of California San Francisco Medical Center where she's undergoing tests for a tumor found on her left pelvis. Doctors anticipate that she will be able to return to her house in the Sacramento region later this week as she awaits the test results.

"I've entered the challenge of my life and I will finish strong," said an optimistic Whitmore, who tanked friends, family and sponsors for their ongoing support in a difficult time.

The Cannondale racer is the 2007 Xterra US Champion, 2004 Xterra World Champion and 2003-04 Exterra European champion. Those wishing to send her a message are encouraged to do so through her web site at www.jamiewhitmore.com.
