Two-time Olympian Eon D’Ornellas continues his recovery after a brutal collision by a driver in Florida in November of 2022.

Garneau, who rode with D’Ornellas 40 years ago, said that he, like many, were upset by the incident. “My great friend Eon D’Ornellas was hit by a car last Friday in Florida. Eon is a Bike dealer from Toronto and he is a super cyclist! He will survive. Please don’t text and drive.”
