It has not been a good week for Watsonville cyclist Andy Jacques-Maynes. Four days after being hit and run by a car during a training ride, Jacques-Maynes was dropped by his team, 5-Hour Energy/Kenda, for the 2013 season — without so much as a phone call, according to his Twitter feed.

Jacques-Maynes’ name was left off the 5-Hour Energy/Kenda roster for 2013 as USA Cycling announced 15 road racing teams for the year and their rosters. According to CyclingNews.com, the 5-Hour Energy/Kenda team and the Competitive Cyclist team have merged, which led to downsizing.

“That’s how you find out, sometimes,” Jacques-Maynes tweeted, following with, “Seems that cycling owes me nothing, after I’ve given cycling everything I have. Unrequited love.”

On Sunday, Jacques-Maynes, a UC Santa Cruz alum, suffered non-displaced fractures of the scapula and clavicle when he was hit and run during a training ride, according to his brother Ben Jacques-Maynes’ Twitter feed. Andy Jacques-Maynes  was riding on Holohan Road near Highway 152 in Watsonville when he was hit by what he thinks was a 2004 or 2005 Chevy Impala SS at about 10:25 a.m. Sunday, according to his Twitter feed, where he has put the call out for his followers to be on the lookout for the vehicle.

Andy Jacques-Maynes will wear a sling for the next six weeks. His plans after that are unknown.

Ben Jacques-Maynes, also a professional cyclist, will compete for Jamis Hagens Berman in 2013.
