As part of the Nations’ Cup U23, which will be held in Saguenay from 4th to 7th of June 2009, the Vallée de l’aluminium team (EVA/Devinci) is holding a North American 2 day (sanctioned)  challenge, to be included in the schedule of the Fédération québécoise des sports cyclistes (FQSC). The cyclists taking part will then have the opportunity to witness one of the five stages of the only U23 World Cup in North America. By hosting such a prestigious competition, the City of Saguenay aims to create an inescapable sporting event, which will undoubtedly attract the best young cyclists from Canada and around the world.

Categories Men (includes categories junior and U23) Women (includes categories junior, U23 and Elite) This challenge will serve as a preparatory event for the athletes before the Canada Games. Therefore, the cyclists’ packs will be merged in a one and only ranking system. Please note that in order to add to the challenge and to increase enrolment levels, the race in the women’s category will also be open to cyclists competing in the Elite category.
