LÉANDRE BOUCHARD SIGNS WITH TEAM BH-SR SUNTOUR KMC
Olympian Léandre Bouchard will join the powerful Team BH-SR Suntour KMC, based in Paris, for the 2017 and 2018 seasons. Bouchard was a member of the Canadian National mountain-bike team at the Rio Games, where he finished 27th. He recorded a career-best 20th at the MTB Worlds in the Czech Republic this year, as well as finishing second behind Derek Zandstra in the Elite men's race at the Canadian Mountain Bike National Championships this year. Bouchard had his best season yet, with a total of three top-20 finishes on the World Cup in addition to his Worlds result.
“I am going to be doing a little bit more racing in Europe and continue my progression on the international circuit. My main focus will be on the World Cup and MTB World Championships next season,” commented Bouchard.
