Bromont Canada Cup Sets Attendance Records
Courtesy Organizer

The Bromont Intersport International Invitational, presented by Cycle Lambert, scheduled for this coming week-end May 17th and 18th at Ski Bromont, has already beaten a participation record! 708 riders from around the globe have already confirmed their presence at this C1 level international mountain bike competition, not counting the 300 to 500 riders that usually register on-site.

Marie-Hélène Prémont, Olympic silver medalist and medal hopeful for Beijing, has already indicated she will be present (note: she also indicated to CC at the Madrid World Cup that she plans to attend), as well as several other well-known riders such as Jacqueline Mourao of Brazil and Mathieu Toulouse, a Quebec rider well known on the international circuit. All will be present to compete for top honours at one of the biggest mountain bike events in North America

Saturday May 17th: the top cross country riders will be in Bromont

The DEVINCI Canada Cup/Quebec Cup cross country events, presented by Michelin, will take place on Saturday, May 17th. Some of the top riders in North America will be present, including Marie-Hélène Prémont of Chãteau Richer, silver medalist at the Athens Olympic Games, Quebecer Raphael Gagné, 2007 U23 Vice National Champion and member of the Canadian National Team, as well as George Edward Duquette of Bromont.

The racing will begin at 9:00 am with the under 15 year old riders, followed by the Sport categories at 10:00 am. The Pro Elite men and women go at noon, and the day will end with the Expert categories at 2:30 pm.

Sunday May 18th: Downhill events on the World Cup course

Sunday at noon the downhill kamikazes take the Ski Bromont course by storm at crazy speeds during the Canada Cup downhill presented by Race Face. This event involves individual timed runs with participants attempting to get from top to bottom as quickly as possible down a specially prepared, gnarly course.

New for 2008

New this year: the event will be presented on the Versant du Lac slopes of Ski Bromont, which will also be the site of the 2008 Bromont Nissan UCI World Cup, to be held from August 1st to 3rd of this year. Two all new courses have been prepared, and the organizers, the Mondial du Vélo.com, promise a great race site for both events.

These riders will be offering great performances all week-end as they begin their 2008 mountain bike season, definitely a sight to see. Also not to be missed, the Nissan UCI World Cup in August, to be run at the same site as this week-end's events.

The Bromont INTERSPORT International Invitational, presented by Cycle Lambert - an event not to be missed this week-end at Ski Bromont - and access is free for all!
