Open House Day at the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve
Come and do some pedaling and share your enthusiasm for biking on the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, which is well regarded for its smooth asphalt surface and outstanding quality. It's a great opportunity for avid bike practitioners to ride safely, with no stress or racing against the clock!
Skaters, roller skiers and triathletes are also invited to come and enjoy the track which, for the occasion, will be closed to cars.
Agility clinic, various promotions and music will be part of the setting in the area at the top of the hairpin.
The crew from the T-Lab company, whose bikes are made in Montréal, will be on Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve to showcase their titanium-based products!
Cycles B mobile Proshop
The Cycles B mobile proshop will be providing bike-repair training clinics and offering free tune-ups. Should replacement parts have to be used during the tune-ups, they will be at the cyclists' expense.
Cyclists will be able to try high-end bikes, created by the Quebec-based company Argon 18, in closed circuit conditions.
Atelier libre de transitions
Triathlon Québec mettra à la disposition des cyclistes une zone d'embarquement et de débarquement ainsi qu'un support à vélo, afin qu'ils puissent s'initier ou parfaire leurs transitions. Les membres de l'équipe seront présents pour répondre aux questions et présenter le défi 12 heures.
