Canadian National Road Race Championships, Lac Mégantic.

The Espoirs Quilicot-TRJ Télécom cycling team is happy to announce that its ranks include the new junior women’s Canadian road champion, Dafné Théroux-Izquierdo, as well as the men’s second-place finisher at the road nationals, Emmanuel Gagné.

In the women’s race on Saturday, June 29, 2013, on a 74 km course and in a sometimes-driving rain, Dafné sprinted to the win ahead of the pack of ten riders who’d separated themselves from the rest of the field about halfway through the race.
On the men’s side, after 119 km, Emmanuel was bested by only one competitor, Hendrick Pineda, finishing 2nd in a hotly-contested sprint involving 20 racers. In the Criterium on Sunday, June 30, 2013, Emmanuel did it again in a pack sprint, finishing 3rd in an exciting, high-speed race.

The men’s team is now training for the Tour de l’Abitibi, while the women’s team prepares for the Tour de Rimouski.
