Cycling Canada – Saint-Georges, QC (June 24, 2019) – Defending Tour de Beauce champion James Piccoli came just short of winning the title for a second year, finishing second overall, 14 seconds behind American Brendan Rhim (Arapahoe/Hincapie). Canadian Nickolas Zukowsky (Floyd’s Pro Cycling), who went into the final stage wearing the Yellow Jersey, dropped to third overall, but won the Best Young Rider jersey. Canada had five riders in the top-10 overall, with Team Canada finishing third in the team classification after 644 kilometres of racing over five days and six stages.

Piccoli was one of the strongest riders in the final stage, but wasn’t quite able to take his second title. “The last stage is very selective and hard to control. Considering how close people were to the lead it was a really open race, and we did our best. I went to the front on the final climb because the field was only ten seconds away, so we needed to keep the pressure on. Brendan had a teammate with him, so I just went to the front and rode as hard as I could but didn’t manage to drop him. I hope I did Team Canada proud this week.”
