Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal 2017: The Route
Sunday, September 10, 2017 - The 8th edition of the Grand Prix de Montréal amounts to 205.7 kilometres. The hilly race is played out a 12.1 kilometres circuit that's ridden seventeen times. The route of the Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal amounts to almost 4,000 vertical metres.
The Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal sets off on Avenue du Parc and shortly after the start the riders tackle the Côte Camillien-Houde. The climb in Parc du Mont-Royal is 1.8 kilometres at 8%. On winding roads the metropolis of Montréal seems very far away indeed.
After cresting the Camillien-Houde the riders plunge down a steady drop and following 1 kilometre on the flat the next climb appears. The Côte de la Polytechnique is 780 metres at 6%, while a 200 metres ramp at 11% kicks in hard. This is the steepest stretch in each round.
Following the Côte de la Polytechnique the riders turn left to drop down Chemin de la Rampe, which is a steep descent with some tight turns. Once down, the wide Chemin de la Côte Ste-Catherine leads back to Avenue du Parc. An U-turn with 560 metres left takes the riders to the finish line on a wide road with a 4% gradient.
A each lap features 229 vertical metres, the full route amounts to 3,893 vertical metres.
Greg Van Avermaet is title defender. Last year, the Olympic Champion outsprinted Peter Sagan and Anthony Roux.
