"Cancers that occur below the belt such as such as prostate, colorectal, ovarian, testicular, bladder, cervical, and uterine lack adequate prevention and funding programs because they are deemed by many people as taboo or uncomfortable for discussion," says Dr. Nigel Brockton, Molecular Epidemiologist at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre.
"This results in fewer preliminary screenings and early diagnosis, yet over 30 percent of new cancer cases in Alberta specifically involve cancers which occur below the belt," Dr. Brockton added.

Speed skiing record holder Nigel Brockton may be the fastest man in Canada on skis, but his goal in the Ride to Conquer Cancer is to "settle into a comfortable rhythm and enjoy the scenery. Once asked by a sports reporter if it helps to be a bit mad, Brockton replied "Bombing straight down slopes at twice Britain's road speed limit is not for the faint hearted. Brockton has twice broken the British record in speed skiing and is the only British ski racer to have won an FIS World Cup Race, but it's clear that this Ride will be an adrenaline rush of a different kind for him.
A serious cyclist, Brockton logs 6000km per year riding to and from the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Calgary where he works as a research scientist in cancer epidemiology. He no longer travels at twice the posted speed limit, but sharing this journey so that the reasons to ride are some day eradicated, will be "the pinnacle" of his "cycling experiences."
Brockton remembers that the "most arduous aspect" of his cancer treatment was "the inactivity imposed by the effects of chemotherapy. As a cancer survivor and researcher whose work is funded by events like this, he's motivated to participate in "this magnificent ride. His advice to those training for the event? "Get together with friends and go for a ride! Go exploring. For Brockton there's nothing like the freedom and the "direct connection you feel with the environment that you're cycling through."

Human Papillomavirus, Hypoxia, and Head and Neck Cancer - Dr. Brockton
High-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is a risk factor for head and neck cancer. In this study, Dr. Brockton and his colleagues will investigate the effect of HPV infection on the expression of endogenous markers of hypoxia (EMH) by exploiting an existing retrospective cohort of tumours assembled in tumour microarrays. Because HPV infection may effect the expression of EMH, failure to stratify tumours by HPV status may account for the disappointing predictive value of EMH.
