54e Classique cycliste Montréal-Québec Le dimanche 18 août 2002

Louis Garneau fait revivre la plus ancienne et la plus longue course cycliste en Amérique du Nord

C'est avec grand plaisir que Louis Garneau, Président designer de Louis Garneau sport inc, annonce qu'il fera revivre la plus ancienne mais aussi la plus longue course cycliste d' Amérique du nord.

N'ayant pas eu lieu depuis 1999, cette prestigieuse course fût organisée pour la première fois en 1931 par Louis Quillicot qui en a été l'organisateur jusqu'en 1953. Plusieurs organisateurs se sont succédés au fil des ans, de 1954 à 1972 René Paquin, de 1988 à 1997 Federico Cornelli et la dernière édition, organisée par le Groupe Impact, a eu lieu en 1999 et a été remporté par Charles Dionne.

D'une longueur de 250 km, la Classique Québec Montréal s'effectuera cette année de Montréal vers Québec. Elle portera désormais le nom de "Classique Montréal-Québec Louis Garneau" Le départ aura lieu devant l'aréna Maurice Richard et se terminera, après une montée de 2 km sur le chemin du Roy, face à l'usine Louis Garneau à Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures. Cette montée en fin de parcours, pouvant atteindre les 15 degrés, donnera sans doute lieu à un fin de course des plus spectaculaires. Cette épreuve étant habituellement remportée par les meilleurs rouleurs et sprinters , donnera cette fois-ci un avantage aux bons grimpeurs. Il faut donc s'attendre à d'importantes surprises en fin de parcours.

Toute la population est invitée à venir aux abords de la route 138 encourager les coureurs qui viendront de partout au Canada et aux états-Unis pour prendre part à cette 54e édition de la plus longue course amateur en Amérique du nord.

54th Montreal-Quebec Classic Bike Race Sunday, August 18, 2002

Louis Garneau revives the oldest and longest bike race in North America

It is with much pleasure that Louis Garneau, President Designer of Louis Garneau Sports Inc., announces that he will revive the oldest and longest bike race in North America.

This famous race, which stopped in 2000, was organized for the first time in 1931 by Louis Quillicot who kept it going until 1954. As the years went by, others took over like René Paquin from 1954 to 1972, Federico Cornelli from 1988 to 1997 and, in 1999, the Impact Group organized the last race which was won by Charles Dionne.

The 250 km long Quebec-Montreal Classic will be held this year from Montreal to Quebec and will be called the "Montreal-Quebec Louis-Garneau Classic", from now on. It will start in front of the Maurice-Richard Arena and will end, after a 2 km 15-degree climb on Chemin du Roy Road, in front of Louis Garneau's factory in St-Augustin-de-Desmaures. This finish promises to be a spectacular one. In the past, this race was won by the best performers on the flat and sprinters . This year however, with the steep hill at the end, the best climbers will have the advantage. A surprising finish is expected !

Bikers from everywhere in Canada and the United States will participate in the 54th edition of the longest amateur bike race in North America. Come in droves on Route 138 to watch and cheer them !

Prairie Steamer Road Race and Time TrialCalgary on Saturday, July 6
Andy Holmwood, Alberta Bicycle Association

The Prairie Steamer event, brainchild of organizer cp Walsh, combined a road race over beautiful, rolling terrain in the foothills west of Calgary with 1 Kilometre (Men) and 500m (Women) Time Trials contested on road bikes at the Glenmore Velodrome. (No, no crashes on the track.) Omnium standings for the event counted points, based on finishing position, from both races.

Thanks to cp and his Synergy Racing team-mates for another excellent event. Prairie Steamer, by the way, is a fine beer produced by the "Brew Brothers" microbrewery.
