UCI World Tour – Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec

9th September 2018

Rounding the corner at Buade and du Fort.

The speed review:
Team Canada does it’s job and gets 3 riders into the early break for some well earned TV time. At the business end of the race, Peter Kennaugh (Bora-Hansgrohe) rides away from the break to potentially win but gets caught in sight of the line. Michael Matthews (Sunweb) sprints to victory ahead of a frustrated Greg Van Avermaet (BMC Racing) who takes second for a fourth time.

The speed review:
At the end of the bike, a small group containing Kristian Blummenfelt gets a lead from the main group containing Mario Mola. The race distills down to whether Mola can catch Blummenfelt, which he does with around 1km left to run.
