LOUIS GARNEAU LAUNCHES A NEW MTB CLUB
Businessman and former Olympic cyclist Louis Garneau, in collaboration with the president of the Association régionale de vélo de montagne Québec Chaudière-Appalaches, announced a new mountainbike division in his Club cycliste Garneau Québec, which will serve all categories of mountain bikers beginning in 2017.
“Our goal is to enable families living in or close to Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures to have access to quality training. There has never been a major mountain-bike club west of Quebec City. In addition, since mountain biking was born 40 years ago this year, we thought the timing was perfect!” states Garneau.
Garneau Quebec has recruited Jonathan Cantin as chief instructor for its mountain-biking activities. Holder of a bachelor's degree in sports intervention, Cantin is well known in the mountain-biking field in which he has been actively involved for several years. He will be in charge of formulating training programs that will enable recreational mountain bikers to enjoy taking on the trails, as well as creating a training program for cyclists wishing to start or continue to advance in their sport at the competitive level.
