“The GPCQM has become a center piece of both the Men’s WorldTour and the Men’s Canadian development scene.” Nigel Ellsay, National Team Coach at Cycling Canada said. “For our athletes, this experience at the GPCQM will see us attacking, getting dropped and fighting at the highest level of the men’s peloton. These experiences will be invaluable to our athletes in their short and long-term development, while building memories to last a lifetime.”
