Grand Prix Quebec and Grand Prix Montreal

Anyone going to see these races? First time in 18 years there's been road racing of this calibre in North America.

I'll be in Montreal on Sunday for a convention, and I'm going to see if I can cut out early to see the finish.

Hopefully it's successful enough to justify an annual race.

As for who I'm cheering for? Voigt and Hesjedal.

Just seen the pics and report on cyclingnews pretty awesome looking event judging by the report the Quebec race was a sucess large crowds historic roads. Montreal course was won by Eddie Mercks back in the day. They have a 5 year agreement. Ill be there next year. Its a great tune up for the worlds. Have a good time at the race.
