Victoriaville, QC (September 7, 2021) – 24 titles across 8 categories were awarded at the 2021 Canadian Masters Road Championships from September 3-6 in Victoriaville, Quebec. Over 250 participants from across the country competed in the time trial, road race and criterium over the long weekend, with riders also taking part in the 6th edition of the Appalachian Classic on Sunday.
The event was part of the Gran Fondo World Series (GFWS) and gave Masters athletes a chance to qualify for the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships in both the time trial and road events. This marked the first time a stage of the GFWS was held in Quebec.
“We are thrilled to have seen such a strong return to racing this past weekend at the Canadian Masters Road Championships,” said Josh Peacock, Cycling Canada’s Marketing & Community Engagement Director. “The organization at Vélo Victo Fest put on a spectacular show, highlighting the nation’s top Masters athletes with some of the most challenging courses we’ve seen to date.”
