Yesterday, the Garneau-Québecor team was awarded the high performance Team for the road category for the year 2012 by the Fédération québécoise des sports cyclistes in Victoriaville.
Rémi Pelletier-Roy was present at the Gala des Mérites in order to receive the honors on behalf of the Québecor-Garneau team. Pelletier-Roy said he is proud of the performance of the team during the last season. "We really surpassed ourselves this year, including myself, Bruno Langlois and Antoine Duchesne". Teamwork allowed us to pick up several podiums. "After several victories and successes this year, the team shined, both at the national and international levels. The year 2013 will be all the more challenging, since the team will compete at the Continental level.
Year after year, Garneau-Québecor has helped several cyclists to develop and reach the experts level, including David Veilleux (Team Europcar) and Hugo Houle (SpiderTech). In addition, it is imperative for Louis Garneau Sports as well as Québecor to encourage these young people by supporting their Sport-studies programs so that they can properly combine cycling and studies, as well as prepare for the après-vélo transition, when they end their cycling career and will turn to their professional future in the fields they have chosen.
