Vélo Cartel Launched
Veteran Quebec rider Bruno Langlois was considering retirement just a couple of years ago, but a win at the Canadian Road Race Championships in 2016 kept him in the game, at least part-time, while at the same time managing to juggle a coaching business and new start-up called Vélo Cartel.
“Even though I consider my Pro career over, I still have goals I want to reach. One of them is taking part in my 20th Tour de Beauce from June 12-17,” said the 39-year-old Quebec native.
The last time Langlois missed Beauce, the old- est stage race in North America, was in 2007. And it took a fractured leg to keep him out of the action.
When not racing, Langlois keeps busy at Vélo Cartel in his hometown of Quebec City. The new business evolved from his coaching sideline, BL Coaching. It’s a place where you can train hard on Computrainers, grab a coffee, have your bike tuned up and buy cycling-related goodies. Vélo Cartel is also the name of the amateur cycling team that Langlois set up for the 2018 season.
“It’s also a way to generate some conversation and exposure for the business,” he explained. For more information, visit www.velocartel.blog. – MB
