Grand Prix Cycliste de Montreal - Overview
The WorldTour heads to Canada for two rounds of one-day events held in Quebec City and Montreal, respectively, on September 9 and 11 in the province of Quebec.
Montreal's 12.1km course includes a climb over Mont Royal and racers will do 17 laps for a total of 205.7km.
Last year, Tim Wellens (Lotto Soudal) won a rain-soaked Grand Prix Cycliste de Montreal from a two-up sprint against his late-race breakaway companion Adam Yates (Orica), while Rui Costa (Lampre-Merida) won the chase-group sprint for third place.
Wellens will return to try and defend his title but there are a series of strong talents also on the hunt for victory including Peter Sagan (Tinkoff), Michael Matthews (Orica), Tom Boonen (Etixx-QuickStep) and Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo).
