The 2018 Canada Cup national series for Downhill opened on Sunday at Mont Tremblant, Quebec, with over 100 athletes in attendance. This is the first of four events in the Downhill Canada Cup for 2018.
In the combined Senior Elite/Junior Expert division, Hugo Langevin (Devinci Development) was the winner, and the first to don the leader's jersey for this season. Langevin finished fifth overall in 2017, with one victory. He finished 1.055 seconds in front of defending Canada Cup champion Jonathan Lefrancois (Devinci), with Philippe Ricard (Cycles Devinci/GIR) taking third.
In the Elite women, it was Kristen Courtney (Liv Cycling Canada) who finished in the top spot, with a time of four minutes and 1.598 seconds. Courtney was an impressive 8.572 seconds in front of second place Audree Vaillancourt (Independent-VM), last year's Canada Cup overall runner up. Third went to Maxine Bergeron (Independent-VM).
The Downhill Canada Cup continues on July 14-15, with Round 2 in Silverstar, BC.
