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.
