Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal. Astana riders attack in exciting race
It was an exciting tenth edition of the Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal, with many attacks from different riders already with 70 kilometers to go. Pello Bilbao, Jonas Gregaard and Magnus Cort were the Astana riders who tried to force something on the hard climb they faced in every local lap. In the end, a select group took off on this climb during the final lap. It was Greg Van Avermaet who was the strongest rider from this group, winning the sprint in front of Diego Ulissi and Iván García Cortina. Hugo Houle was the first Astana rider to finish (28th).
