Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal 2015: The Route
Sunday, September 13, 2015 - The Grand Prix de Montréal is held two days after the race in Québec. For both races it is the sixth edition and both are battled out on a circuit. In Montreal this means seventeen times a 12.1 kilometres spin through the Parc du Mont-Royal.
The start is on Avenue du Parc. After two bends to the right the Côte Camillien-Houde welcomes the riders, a 1.8 kilometres hill at 8%. On the winding roads the metropolis of Montréal seems very far away indeed.
After cresting Côte Camillien-Houde with 2.1 kilometres done a relatively long drop lays waiting. Once down two right-angle bends to the right take the riders into avenue Maréchal. Following a sharp left turn, the riders pass the buildings of the Université de Montréal before the next climb begins. The Côte de la Polytechnique is 780 metres at 6% with a 200 metres steepest section at 11%.
Atop Côte de la Polytechnique the riders turn left to attack Chemin de la Rampe, a steep descent with some tight turns. Once down, the wide Chemin de la Côte Ste-Catherine leads to Avenue du Parc. Just before the drop to the Saint Lawrence River a sharp turn takes the riders to the finish line. Only 560 metres left on a road rising with a gradient of 4%.
Simon Gerrans is title-holder.
