Pics from Quebec Champs 2014

Hello. The Quebec Provincial Track Championships, or Championnats Québecois De Cyclisme Sur Piste, was held on Sept. 7th in Bromont, Quebec.

The track is an exterior 250m track, it was the one that was used for the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, after which it was put in storage and in 2000, re-assembled at the Cycling Center in Bromont, it opened in 2001.
