Vélo Car­tel Launched

Pedal Magazine - - Out In Front -

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
