Grands Prix Cyclistes


2017Arthur VichotKulczyk - DMTEX
2016Tomohiro KinoshitaMeiji - JR East
2015Wilco KeldermanTeam Puma - SAP

Welcome to the fourth edition of Grands Prix Cyclistes. In 2015 the two Canadian races, Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec and Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal, were merged into a combined two-day event. This year Québec City hosts the first leg, and the second and last leg is in Montréal the next day. Vichot won last year's edition and is defending his title. Kinoshita and Kelderman are the two other winners in the new format, but both are not eligible to participate in this C2HC rated classic.



Both stages are hilly, but are somewhat different in parcours. Québec has shorter but steeper climbs, and an uphill finish. Montréal has longer climb, but a flat finish.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/Micro/mg18_emo.png Di Maggio is ranked as main favorite for the race. The Italian might be the biggest name in the race, and has a very good team behind him with riders like pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/Micro/mg18_emo.png Serry and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/Micro/mg18_emo.png Skjerping.

Another possible name for the highest step on the podium is pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/Micro/mg18_vad.png Gautier. Valio is currently leading the CT division and is set for another nice collection of points here. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/Micro/mg18_cpl.png Zaini is the team leader for Compal.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/Micro/mg18_esc.png Meyer has already won two stage races this season (Slovenie, San Luis) and is looking to add this race to his hattrick of CT races by this reporter. There is no time trial though, but that shouldn't deter him. Another contender for a podium is pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/Micro/mg18_bnz.png Edmondson.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/Micro/mg18_csd.png Ben Nasser has a history in Canada. He won the Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal back in 2012, and finished on the podium of the combined version twice (2015, 2016). pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/Micro/mg18_del.png Vichot though has the best record, winning the Montréal leg and the overall GC last year.

The Montréal finish might be more suited to a punchy sprinter. Riders like pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/Micro/mg18_del.png Favilli and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2018/Micro/mg18_ofr.png Geschke have likely set their eye to this stage.

Show me some Pibernik magic Cool
This is a goal race for us, so hopefully we can land a couple of good performances. Both stages suit Kadri, Vichot and Favilli well (which Vichot's win here last year is a testament of), so we should have every chance of landing a podium here if the race develops in our favour!
Wow that was as good as it could get for us. Pibernik in with a chance for the white jersey, Mezgec with probably the ride of the day, didn't expect him that high. Othman gives us a 3rd man in the top 10 Smile

Now I hope it doesn't all fall apart in stage 2 Pfft
That was some rather good outing for the Swisslion squad. Now let's hope they can keep it up!
Shame Kadri and Vichot was positioned so poorly into the final kilometer, as it otherwise could have been a great stage for us, seeing how the raced developed. Relying on a great performance in Montreal to achieve our top 10 goal, then. Need one of them to step up a bit.
not exactly what we needed
Why couldn’t this race have been selective last year? Pfft Nice to see the CT going again, and Afoa trying to join the break!

Thanks for the preview.
Hope for some point in this race


If you're interested in weird music:
Ups did realise it was already postet, thanks for the great reports.

Good to se the team work of the Asahi trops, happy with the result.


If you're interested in weird music:
Wohooo ... grat stage/race ... I never thought this after the first stage. Thanks for the reports Smile
Better than we expected. A top 10 and and a top 20 overall is pretty good. Pibernik taking the white jersey was the cherry on top Grin

Thanks for the great reports Smile
Thanks for the good reports!

Have to admit that missing the podium is disappointing, but at least we get the points jersey to compensate a bit.

Much, much better stage for us! Love that Kadri has these kind of performances in his locker Smile That's another goal wrapped up, then.

Congrats to ENI and thanks for some good reports!
Pretty happy with the race. Edmondson has 2 good stages and finishes 10th overall. Not to bad!

Congrats to the winner and thanks for the reports!!
