The Beauce GP starts next Tuesday with a crit in Quebec City at 18h30 on the Plains of Abraham. Good course, fast and hard.
RE BEAUCE GP: Elbows will be busy on the starting line of the Beauce Grand Prix. A few days before the start of this prestigious race, it was learned that Igor Boutchoukov, last year's winner, will be back to defend his title.
Also there, the three leaders of the Coor's series: Frank McCormack, Trent Kalsna and Jonathan Vaughters. The Grand Prix may also welcome the Alberta provincial team. Negotiations with the team, presently at the Saguenay/Lac St-Jean Tour, are going on.
Where In the World Is Elladee?
We have been trying to find out what happened to Canadaâ€šs top female downhiller in Europe - she left for Europe to compete on the World Cup circuit, but hasnâ€št turned up in any results columns. Well, thanks to Rocky Mountain (Elladeeâ€šs sponsor) suspension guru Marshall Cant we now have the story: Elladee was a DNF at the first European World Cup (Italy, WC#2), and then came down with a virus and couldnâ€št race in Spain for event #3. She should be back on the circuit shortly.
