The Canadian province of Quebec will host La Coupe de la Paix between June 22 and 25, a four-race series in the municipalities of the Rive-Nord: Laval, Mascouche, Repentigny and Blainville. The event is well placed between the GP de Beauce and the Canadian road championships, making it possible for Quebec riders to measure themselves against internationals. The series is registered with the National Road Ranking, and competitors can score points towards a place on the national team.

So far, three teams from Australia, the Netherlands and the USA have confirmed their participation. A total purse of $50,000 will be awarded, with $10,000 per race ($6,400 men/$3,600 women) and $10,000 for the overall points.
