Grand Opening of Velodrome Louis-Garneau

The Quebec Region finally has a permanent cycling facility.

July 12, 2001 - With the Velodrome Louis-Garneau, the Region of Quebec will finally be equipped with a permanent cycling facility which will meet the growing needs of the cycling population and stimulate the development of high calibre athletes in the region and East of Quebec.

Thanks to the new National Centre for Cycling Development in the Region of Quebec's partners and the support of the Quebec's Minister of Leisure and Sport, Mr. Richard Legendre, the Velodrome Louis-Garneau was inaugurated today in Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures.

This venture started back in the fall of 2000 when the Municipality of Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures and Louis Garneau Sports Inc. joined forces to buy the Bromont's 200 m velodrome. The Campus Notre-Dame-de-Foy got on board by allowing the National Centre for Cycling Development in the Region of Quebec to be erected and installed on their premises.

At the beginning of 2001, the Quebec Cycling Federation, the Canadian Cycling Association and the Quebec-Chaudiere-Appalaches Regional Mountain Bike Association joined the others to form the National Centre for Cycling Development in the Region of Quebec, one of the high standard training centres recognised by the Canadian Cycling Association.

The project finally materialized thanks to the acknowledgement and the financial support of the Quebec's Minister of Leisure and Sport, Mr. Richard Legendre, and the Quebec's Leisure and Sport Secretariat.

"The cyclists of the Quebec Region will finally be able to learn how to use the track for cycle-racing, thanks to the velodrome", affirms Louis Garneau, president of the new National Centre for Cycling Development in the Region of Quebec. " Over the years, the velodrome and the training programs available in St-Augustin will give new track racers from the region the chance to join the Quebec and Canadian teams", adds Louis Garneau.

According to Jean Leclerc, President of the Quebec Cycling Federation, "the velodrome is important as we have many members in the Region of Quebec who will benefit from it and we are convinced that many talented track racers from the Quebec Region, like Alexendre Cloutier, will emerge over the next few years", he adds.
