It’s a race that has run for 30 years. Among the list of previous winners are riders who’ve gone on to glory in the World Tour. Its a right of passage for all Canadian riders who dream of being ‘pro’. Without a doubt your first Tour de Beauce will be brutal… and it never truly improves from there, as a rider you simply deal with it better. Its a hard race, for hard men.
After four stages Ryan sits fifth overall. He had an impressive ride up Mont Megantic and even more impressive second place in the stage 3 time trial – a career best result for Ryan at the Beauce Time Trial. Team shooter Brian Hodes of Veloimages captures emotion of this magnificent race – stages one and two.
