Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal

men|Sep 11

Team DSM coach Luke Roberts: “The second race of our Canadian double-header, Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal takes place on a slightly harder parcours than its Quebec counterpart. The ascent at the beginning of the circuit, the Côte Camillien-Houde, is almost two kilometres long and averages eight percent – which gives the purer climbers a chance to go on the attack alongside the puncheurs. Depending on how aggressively the day is approached by the bunch, a strong group can go clear to compete for the win in the finale or we could also see another larger reduced sprint finish. As a team, we have a variety of cards to play throughout the day so we can react to what we expect to be a dynamic race situation.”
