Quebec Cup 2011 Round #5
Mont-Sainte-Anne XCO Race Footage

It was the Quebec Cup race #5 at Mont-Sainte-Anne last Saturday June 18th. We laid down some ‘rubber’ on the track for the World Cup bros racing there next week. Hope it’ll be a bit more grippy for them.

I’m all super stoked about my result. Was trying hard all season to ‘pierce’ the top10 so 5th felt like a win. Not sure if it’s because some of the ‘top guns’ weren’t there (via father’s day duty). It’s a little different racing with the #cooldads compared with the #20something to be honest. These guys are ‘next level’ pros.

Anyways, it’s been an incredible racing week-end. Huge props to the organization & the volunteer bros of the Velirum festival/event thing. They really put their heart into it and it shows as we always get the ‘world-class’ treatment there. I love LOVE LOVE Mont-Sainte-Anne!

Did you compete in a race at Mont-Sainte-Anne?

Did you ‘killed it’/'blew it’?

Are you coming back next week to cheer for the World Cup bros?

Some brave girl screamingly shred the track like a boss during Friday practice at Mont-Sainte-Anne

I am sorry but I couldn’t help it. I had to share this moment, it was too cute :-) She got +50 bravery right there, way to go!

It’s the ‘Velirium’ this week-end at Mont-Sainte-Anne, and the XC track is ‘mad fun’.

Quebec Cup at Mont Sainte-Anne, XCO, First lap of the race

First lap of the race in the masters sport 30-39 Men category at Mont Sainte-Anne for the cross-country mountain bike Quebec Cup. This was the second wave of the 10:15 am start on Sunday August 22nd, 2010. The race format was an Olympic Cross-Country with 4 laps to complete. It was the 9th race of the championship and it took place on the track that’ll be used for the World Championship there next week.

The footage was shot on a GoPro HD camera, on board with me riding for Gravité Sports / Vélo Chambly.
