Grands Prix Cyclistes de Québec and Montréal will go ahead as planned on September 11 and 13 while event organisers remain attentive to local health restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic. The one-day races will coincide with the Tour de France and Tirreno-Adriatico on the revised late-season calendar, however, organisers are confident they will attract a competitive field of one-day racers. 

"Because of the nature of our races, however, we should still see a high-quality field of competitors in Québec City and Montréal," said Serge Arsenault, President of the GPCQM, in a press statement.
