August 1/13 12:21 pm - Grand Prix cycliste de Rimouski and Tour de la releve: report and results


Posted by joe on 08/1/13
 

The second Grand Prix cycliste de Rimouski was held Wedesday. An international-calibre road race for Junior women sanctioned by the International Cycling Union, it is the only UCI-sanctioned 1.1 race for this category in North America. At the end of the tough competition, it was Quebec native Catherine Ouellette who lifted the trophy.

The cyclists had to cover a distance of 72 kilometres, starting from Rimouski, riding through the municipalities of Saint-Anaclet, Sainte-Luce (Luceville) and Mont-Joli, and returning to Rimouski on a loop through the same municipalities. The route includes several challenging climbs to spice things up for the competitors.

The peloton stayed together for much of the race, aided by a brisk tailwind that helped the riders maintain a good pace on the way toward Mont-Joli. Although several riders attempted to break away from the pack along the way, none of were able to maintain their lead. With some of the world’s best Junior women cyclists in the peloton – including the national champions from Canada, Mexico and New Zealand – the competition was extremely close.

To the delight of the spectators, the race ended with a group sprint to the finish line. With a time of 2:09:11, Catherine Ouellette (André Cycle Kaycan RDS) carried the day, beating Marie-Ève Poisson ( IAMGOLD Specialized), who took silver, and Clara MacKenzie (Giordanna-Pinarello) took the bronze.

The Tour de la relève internationale de Rimouski

Thus the stage is set for the Tour de la relève internationale de Rimouski which starts Thursday This is a stage race for Cadet (15–16 years old) men and women and Junior (17–18 years old) men’s and women’s categories. The goal of the event is to prepare these young athletes for international competition and give them the opportunity to experience a race similar to the Tour de France.

The action got underway with the opening stage, the 7-kilometre team time trial, starting on Rue du Fleuve in Pointe-au-Père. The first stage of the Tour de la relève internationale de Rimouski will then be held tomorrow: a 57-kilometre race that begins and ends on the official event site at 280 Boulevard Arthur-Buies Est in Rimouski.
