February 11/11 19:43 pm - Olympian / Paralympian Cyclists To Compete at Pentathlon des neiges La Vie Sportive

Posted by Editoress on 02/11/11

On February 19th, a unique team of Olympian and Paralympian athletes will take part in the 7th Pentathlon des neiges La Vie Sportive in Québec City. Held from January 29th to February 27th on the Plains of Abraham, venue of the Québec Winter Carnival, Le Pentathlon des neiges is Canada's most important outdoor winter event. It will attract 2,800 amateur and elite athletes.

On Sunday, February 27th, the Pentathlon will present La Vie Sportive Elite Long Distance Challenge, an event custom-made for high performance athletes, with $6,000 to be awarded in prizes. Tandem Paralympian Cyclist Pierre-Olivier Boily (QC) will not only compete in the Corporate Challenge held on February 19th under the colors of his official beer Siboire - the Sherbrooke-based microbrewery - but also in the Long Distance Solo Challenge.

2010 winner Pascal Bussières will fight for his title. 2009 Champion and Triathlon competitor Charles Perreault (absent in 2010) will be back to fight for the title. Olympian Joël Bourgeois, a first-time participant in the Pentathlon, will also take part in the event, in addition to his participation to the Corporate Challenge with the Tellement Sport team. Mountain bikers Éric Tourville and Marie-Josée Dufour, who both placed second in 2010, will also be in the starting blocks. Olympian and professional cyclist Lyne Bessette will participate in the Pentathlon for the first time and also try to win the Elite Solo Challenge.

A number of cyclists and para-cyclists will participate:

Lyne Bessette
