Star studded group including a few past winners.
Tomorrow is the much anticipated sixth editions of the Grands Prix Cyclistes Quebec & Montreal (Sunday) races in la belle province. Kudos to the event/city organizers creating a high calibre racing event. The world's top racers have appreciated it's high level organization and hospitality. This year especially as a spring board to the upcoming world road race championship in Richmond, VA at the end of the month. I always enjoy watching the races with a special spot for Montreal - having lived there for a short time in the late nineties and visiting Quebec City on numerous occasions.
These are important series of races especially showcasing our home grown talent...

"I hope to finish my season strong and do well here. Historically I had my best rides in Montreal. But different years, different situations. I like them both and hope to be up front in both."
- Ryder Hesjedal, twice on podium in Montreal.
"I won here after a fierce battle with Gesink. It was really a great win in a great race with a great organisation. The kind of rider that I am relishes that sort of terrain. It's a great playground."
- Philippe Gilbert, 2011 GP du Quebec winner.
