The Défi Sportif is an international event that assembles athletes from the elite and newcomers, with all types of disabilities. About 4,000 athletes from 20 countries or so, facing each other during 7 days. Presented by Hydro-Québec, the Défi sportif is organized by AlterGo, which represents organizations with a common concern, access to leisure for handicapped people.
The Time Trial and Road Race takes place on Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, Montreal’s F1 race track location.
This is a well attended P1 event, meaning points earned at this event will count towards UCI rankings. There will be a UCI classification opportunity here, date TBD. Classification will be necessary for official participation in Defi Sportif and Canadian Cycling Championships at the end of June.
