The Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal was first organised in 2010. While it was raining cat and dogs, edition 2015 saw young Belgian rider Tim Wellens playing it cool by besting Adam Yates in a sprint-à-deux with a chasing group pushing hard behind. Unlike most one-day races ‘Montreal’ is held on a circuit with riders doing 17 laps of 12.1 kilometres around Mount Royal, the hill giving the city it’s name. After three short climbs in each lap the finish is uphill on the Avenue du Parc. By winning, Wellens became the successor of Simon Gerrans. (Slideshow route/profile)
