“It was a good race for us, although we had a bit of stress at the start with a mechanical problem,” said Lachance. “It was a technical course, but we climbed pretty well and had a smooth ride.”

“Our motivation was at the top with the home crowd cheering for us,” said Chalifour. “The last year has been very tough for me, after my crash in Italy and the two surgeries I had to my hips. So to finish third here is very, very nice.”
