The Tour de la relève internationale de Rimouski is a six-stage cycling race organized for male and female Cadets (15-16 years old) as well as for female Juniors (17-18 years old).
From July 9 to July 13, Rimouski will greet 200 athletes from all around Canada, the United States and Europe.
The event's main goal is to prepare these athletes for Juniors international competitions by allowing them to live a small Tour de France experience. Athletes and coaches will then have access to conferences and courses intended to help them progress.
This stage race constitutes a privileged springboard for our young riders. After three edition, this event has already become an important component of Quebec's calendar, and even the North American race calendar. In a near future, we hope it will attract more European teams, therefore giving the participants more exposure and help them emerge on the international scene.
By registering your team, you will allow your riders to beneficiate from a professional organization and give them the opportunity to take up the challenge of competing six stages in four days on selective courses.
