Just over six months since the terrible incident in Germany - Alexis makes the Comm Games team. Absolutely sensational!!! **** Australian Games cycling team announced. February 3, 2006 - 3:57PM http://www.theage.com.au/news/Sport...-team-announced/2006/02/03/1138836416026.html The Australian Commonwealth Games Association has announced a strong team of 33 cyclists for the Melbourne Games in March. Olympic champions Sara Carrigan, Kathy Watt, Ryan Bayley, Anna Meares, Peter Dawson and Stephen Wooldridge headline the team, which also includes reigning world individual pursuit champion Katie Mactier. Another notable member of the road team is Alexis Rhodes, who has made a stunning recovery from injuries suffered in the crash in Germany last July that killed teammate Amy Gillett. "Alexis epitomises the character of the great Australian sportsperson and we are thrilled to welcome her to the team," Australian Commonwealth Games Association chief executive Perry Crosswhite said. "Special mention should be made of the return of Kathy Watt, who will compete in her fourth Games to provide an appropriate bookend to her career, which began with a gold medal in the road race in Auckland in 1990." Simon Gerrans was named as expected in the men's road team and he will be given every chance to prove his fitness after suffering serious shoulder injuries this week in a crash near the end of a race in France.
