American cyclo-crosser Jonathan Page will have to miss most, if not all, of the 2006-2007 cyclo-cross season. Page tore his rotator cuff at the world cup race in Aigle, Switzerland on October 1 and will have to have surgery next Monday.
On his website, thejonathanpage.com. he wrote that after surgery, "I'll be in a brace for 3 weeks and then, if all goes well, I'll start p.t. again. The shoulder specialist said 3 months until I am full gas again. My doctor said he'll shoot for 2. Either way it really sucks."
Page is a multiple winner of the US national cyclo-cross championships and a regular top-10 finisher in the world cups and Superprestige races in Europe.
