The peloton is back in the City of a Thousand Lights, three years later. The Montreal Grand Prix is ​​on the calendar after two years of truce forced by the Covid-19. The Canadian classic, 221.4 km long, promises a nice spectacle in the streets of Montreal, with 18 laps of a circuit marked by the Camillien-Houde hill (2.3 km at 6.2%) which will highlight the punchers.

The list of contenders for victory is long, led by the upcoming match between Tadej Pogacar (UAE Emirates) and Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma), the two cadors of world cycling. Behind this luxury duo, the outsiders will have their chances in a race that is usually very open. Adam Yates, Biniam Girmay, Matej Mohoric, Alberto Bettiol or even former winners Greg van Avermaet (2016 and 2019), Michael Matthews (2018) or Peter Sagan (2013) could join the fight.

The French clan is also well represented with Benoit Cosnefroy (winner of the GP of Quebec on Friday and now among the favorites), David Gaudu, Romain Bardet, Christophe Laporte, Warren Barguil or Guillaume Martin. Follow the race live.
