Van Avermaet Aiming to Repeat Success in Québec and Montréal5. September 2017, Santa Rosa, California (USA) — Road Team
Greg Van Avermaet returns to Canada this week for the one-day classics GP Cycliste de Québec and GP Cycliste de Montréal, looking to repeat his podium results of 2016.
Van Avermaet, who placed second in Québec and went on to win in Montréal in 2016, is excited to return to Canada for the races.
“GP Cycliste de Québec and Montréal are two of my favorite races in the whole calendar so it’s always nice to go back. Both courses suit me well and the crowds are always great so there is a nice atmosphere. I’m feeing good and I’m motivated to return and hopefully repeat my results from last year. A good result at both races would be a great way to end the season,” Van Avermaet explained.
A strong team will line up in support of Van Avermaet, Sports Director Fabio Baldato said.
“We are lining up at the GP Cycliste de Québec and GP Cycliste de Montréal with an exceptional leader in Greg van Avermaet. Greg was second in Quebec last year and won Montreal so we know these are two of the one-day classics most-suited to him throughout the season,” Baldato said.
“Greg is motivated to repeat his success this year and as a team we are 100% behind him. We have a strong group of riders ready to race for Greg, including Dylan Teuns who is in the form of his career. Of course, in one-day races anything can happen but I believe we can put Greg on the podium again at both races.”
