“I can’t be disappointed with the performance of our riders, although I had hoped for a better result. As expected, the race was closed for a long time, the attacks came in the last two fast laps."

Rigoberto Uran won the GP Québec, the first of two Canadian WorldTour races. Just before the last kilometre he escaped and stayed ahead of the sprinting peloton. Michael Matthews was second, Alexander Kristoff third. Lotto Soudal rider Tony Gallopin finished as eighth.

 

It was already in the first of sixteen laps that a front group of six riders was formed:Ryan Roth, Adam De Vos, Wouter Wippert, Perrig Quemeneur, Cesare Benedetti and Darren Lapthorne. After thirty kilometres they reached their maximal lead of 9’10”; it shrunk lap after lap due to the work of BMC and Trek. In the twelfth lap the front group fell apart, after Wippert and Lapthorne had already been dropped. Benedetti tried together with Roth, but the peloton was only thirty seconds behind. In the fourteenth lap a nice front group was formed thanks to Lars Bak and Kuznetsov. Other riders in the group: Barguil, Bardet, Alaphilippe, Taaramae, Bookwalter, Kreuziger, Felline, Dillier, early escapee Roth and Jürgen Roelandts.

 

There was attack after attack, but none was successful. Kelderman and Fuglsang stayed in front a bit longer than the others, but with five kilometres to go they were caught as well. Under the banner of the last kilometre Rigoberto Uran took his chance. The Colombian only had a few seconds advantage, but that turned out to be sufficient to take the win in Québec.

 

Today the peloton travels to Montréal to ride the GP Montréal tomorrow.

 

“I can’t be disappointed with the performance of our riders, although I had hoped for a better result. As expected, the race was closed for a long time, the attacks came in the last two fast laps," sports director Herman Frison said. "The group of twelve with Bak and Roelandts seemed a good attempt, but Orica and Katusha weren’t represented. Tiesj Benoot had problems on a  bad moment and couldn’t play a role anymore, Tim Wellens didn’t have a good day.

 

"In the end it was a fight between the better riders, and it was a strong performance of Uran to take that win. An elite group of strong classics riders sprinted for the other top results. When you take a look at the results you see that these are the riders with ambitions for the World Championships. Now we go to Montréal, to race on a similar, maybe a bit tougher course, but I expect a same kind of race.”
