1Gary Longhi (Par­a­lympian), Al­bert Schel­straete-coulier (velo­drome builder), Karen Strong (first Cana­dian to win a medal at the track world cham­pi­onships) and Steve Smith (down­hill World Cup over­all win­ner) get in­ducted to the Cana­dian Cy­cling Hall of Fame.

5Guests par­tic­i­pate in Cy­cling BC’S fifth evening of cham­pi­ons fundrais­ing din­ner. The event helps to sup­port iride pro­grams, train­ing camps and com­pet­i­tive op­por­tu­ni­ties for young cy­clists. Spe­cial guests in­clude Pierre La­fontaine, ceo of Cy­cling Canada, and some of the coun­try’s top rid­ers.

5Mi­lano-torino is one of the fi­nal road races of the 2017 sea­son. In 2016, Ot­tawa’s Michael Woods fin­ished sec­ond in this hors cat­e­gory event, just be­hind Miguel Án­gel López. Woods will likely be back look­ing to stand on the top step of the podium.

27Na­tional time trial cham­pion Karol-ann Canuel, road race cham­pion Mat­teo Dal-cin and World­tour rider Michael Woods fea­ture at the Ot­tawa Cy­cling Cel­e­bra­tion. The cock­tail re­cep­tion, with silent auc­tion, will raise funds for the Na­tional Cap­i­tal Re­gion Cy­cling Bur­sary, which has help de­vel­op­ing rid­ers from the area since 2000.

27-29The na­tional cx cham­pi­onships re­turn to Sher­brooke, Que. Last year, Maghalie Rochette (p. 38) took the elite women’s ti­tle. Will she be able to de­fend it? Jérémy Martin an­nounced his re­tire­ment from pro­fes­sional cy­cling this past April, so it looks like a new elite male rider will don the maple-leaf jer­sey this year. The week­end starts with a team re­lay race on Fri­day evening. On Satur­day, all the na­tional cham­pi­onship races – for un­der-13 rid­ers to sex­a­ge­nar­ian (and older) rac­ers – run in Jac­ques-cartier Park. On Sun­day, com­peti­tors can race again in the fi­nal event of the Coupe du Québec Série de Cy­clocross Maglia Rosa.
