Vélo.Victo.Fest ultimate qualifier for Worlds on the American continent

The new Canadian qualifier event in Victoriaville (Quebec) this weekend offers the last chance for Canadian and American riders to qualify for the 2021 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships in a month in Istocno Sarajevo.

The event starts with a time trial on Friday over a distance of 23.7km on a flat and fast course.

The road races on Sunday have two distances. The long Gran Fondo course of 131 km has an elevation gain of 1,684 m and counts as qualifying distance for men aged 19 to 59 and women aged 19 to 49. For men aged 60 and over and women aged 50 and over, the qualifying distance will be a course of 112 km with an elevation gain of 1,393 m. Both courses are similar apart from an additional 18.9 km loop for the long course. A dirt section up to 2 km is part of this loop.

All races start and finish in the city center of Victoriaville (QC).
