BORA – ARGON 18 will race at the Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec (Sep 11) and the Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal (Sep 13) for the first time in its team history. The German team received a wildcard by the organizers for the two WorldTour races. Including these events, BORA – ARGON 18 rides 45 days of its season program in the top tier of international cycling. Racing in Canada is another home event for the squad, as co-naming-sponsor and bike partner Argon 18 has its headquarters in Montréal.

"We are of course very motivated, because the Canadian WorldTour events are raced directly at the headquarters of our naming partner Argon 18. We will start with our best classics and sprint specialists. We even plan to travel to Canada with some of our Tour de France starters, such as for example Sam Bennett. In addition to the Tour of Bavaria, the Canadian races are our second home event this year. And as in Bavaria top results are the very clear objective for the team in Montréal as well", comments Ralph Denk, Team Manager of BORA – ARGON 18, the two wildcards.

"It's a big highlight, that we welcome the riders who competed in the Tour de France with our Argon 18 bikes in Montréal. In addition to the two races we are of course pleased that we can also present our headquarters and our employee to the team members of BORA – ARGON 18. It’s going to be some very special days and we are planning many activities around the races", says Gervais Rioux, Founder and President of Argon 18.

For the Canadian races, the company La Cordée will be partnering BORA – ARGON 18. La Cordée is a renown sports retailer in Canada. They specialize in bicycles as well as outdoor sports and are an important business ally of Argon 18 in Québec.
