Woods and Alaphilippe return for the Grands Prix Cyclistes de Québec et de Montréal

Once again this year, the Grands Prix Cyclistes de Québec et de Montréal (GPCQM) will feature an outstanding slate of riders with, among others, 6 of the top 10 finishers from the most recent Tour de France lining up at the start on September 8 and 10. It will be a top-flight peloton but also one of considerable depth, since in addition to the 18 UCI WorldTeams, the organizers have invited 4 ProTeams along with Team Canada as wild-card entries, for a total of 23 teams and 161 racers from 26 countries on 5 continents—the biggest field since the inception of the GPCQM in 2010.

The Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec circuit will be particularly well suited to punchers and those used to steep descents. Riders will complete 16 laps, and the hill climb to the finish line in Old Québec promises to be spectacular! Expect an extremely challenging race for the world’s best cyclists.

The competition will be at the very highest level again this year, with 9 stage winners from this year's Tour de France vying for the podium. The headliners include:

JULIAN ALAPHILIPPE (France) (Soudal Quick-Step), the UCI Road World Champion in 2020 and 2021 

ADAM YATES (Great Britain) (UAE Team Emirates), third-place finisher and winner of a stage at the 2023 Tour de France ;

GREG VAN AVERMAET (Belgium) (AG2R Citroën Team), Gold Medalist in the Men's Road Race at the 2016 Olympics, four-time podium finisher at the Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal including wins in 2016 and 2019, six-time podium finisher in Québec City and a participant in ten consecutive GPCQMs, competing in his final season as a professional 

BENOÎT COSNEFROY (France) (AG2R Citroën Team), winner of the 2022 Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec

SIMON YATES (Great Britain) (Team Jayco–Alula), the fourth-place finisher at the 2023 Tour de France and a winner of ten Grand Tour stages

MICHAEL MATTHEWS (Australia) (Team Jayco–Alula), winner of the 2018 and 2019 Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec and of the 2018 Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal, and a Tour de France stage winner in 2022

MICHAEL WOODS (Canada) (Israel–Premier Tech), winner of Stage 9 at this year's Tour de France, the third Canadian in history to win a stage at the Grande Boucle.
