2018 Pro Cycling Classics Live Updates

A record number of North American riders at the Grands Prix Cyclistes de Québec et de Montréal!

Three weeks before the 10th edition of the Grand Prix Cyclistes de Québec et de Montréal (GPCQM), the organization is announcing the large North American cyclist contingent competing in its races on September 13 and 15. In 2019, 16% of the peloton comes from the continent, specifically from UCI WorldTeams, (ASTANA PRO TEAM, EF EDUCATION FIRST, GROUPAMA-FDJ, MITCHELTON-SCOTT), invited UCI Professional Continental Teams (RALLY UHC CYCLING, ISRAEL CYCLING ACADEMY) and the Canadian National Team. News that the organization is proud to unveil, as well as the addition of two laps to the Montréal circuit (total distance of 219.6 km), as it celebrates its 10th anniversary. Enough to delight fans in search of thrills and athletes in search of excellence!

The full squad will be announced in the coming days. However, we know that Peter Sagan (BORA Hansgrohe) will be competing in the races this September.

Peter Sagan

2013 MONTRÉAL – 2016 QUÉBEC – 2017 QUÉBEC

Since the first edition, Slovak Peter Sagan, one of the most promising devourers of platoon victories, has been focusing on success in Quebec. "I love these races," he said from the very first year, aware that the demanding profiles of both circuits suited his qualities as a finisher. Second in Montreal in 2010, he had never succeeded in keeping the peloton in check. It was by attacking from a distance that he made his mark in 2013. With five kilometers to go, he escaped. The Slovak even bought himself a wheelie, his trademark of great success, when crossing the line. A regular at the GPCQM, he also won with panache, wearing the beautiful rainbow jersey of world champion in Quebec City in 2016 and then in 2017, scoring the hundredth victory of a brilliant career that year.
