The 2017 Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal is a road cycling one-day race that is scheduled to take place on 10 September. It will be the 8th edition of the Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal and will be the 34th event of the 2017 UCI World Tour. Totalling at 205.7 kilometres, the contest is played out in the Parc du Mont-Royal. This sporting spectacle of the highest level will transform Mount Royal into a true race track where the world's elite of cycling will compete. A unique opportunity to see these great champions in action in a most festive and welcoming atmosphere.

The circuit of Mount Royal, imposing 17 times its ascent, will be ruthless for the runners. A formidable course, with repetitive ascents extremely demanding and with very dicult rhythm. A unique competition, right in the heart of downtown, which will ensure excitement for these exceptional athletes as well as for all amateurs from here and elsewhere.

Olympic Champion Greg Van Avermaet is title holder in Montréal. In 2016 he won the race ahead of World Champion Peter Sagan and Diego Ulissi.

Totalling at 205.7 kilometres, the Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal sets off on Avenue du Parc. The circuit is similar to the one that hosted the road race at the UCI Road World Championships in 1974, when the legendary Eddy Merckx claimed the rainbow jersey. After two turns to the right the Côte Camillien-Houde welcomes the riders, a 1.8 kilometres hill at 8%. On winding roads the metropolis of Montréal seems very far away indeed.

After cresting Côte Camillien-Houde with 2.1 kilometres done a relatively long drop lays waiting. Then two right-angle bends take the riders onto avenue Maréchal. Following a sharp left turn, the riders pass the buildings of the Université de Montréal before the next climb appears. The Côte de la Polytechnique is 780 metres at 6% with a 200 metres steepest section at 11%.

On top of the Côte de la Polytechnique the riders turn left to tackle Chemin de la Rampe, a steep descent with some tight turns. Once down, the wide Chemin de la Côte Ste-Catherine leads back to Avenue du Parc. Just before the drop to the Saint Lawrence River a sharp turn takes the riders to the finish line. Only 560 metres left on a road rising with a gradient of 4%.

Sagan’s return to the GP Quebec and Montreal is welcome as the Slovak has found success at both races during his career.

Together with its sister race in Québec, the Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal offers an attractive path for riders building towards the UCI Road World Championships. A case in point is that of Rui Costa in 2013: the Portuguese rider took two top six places in the two events prior to capturing the road race world title in Italy in October. In 2015, with the UCI Road World Championships also being held on the American continent (Richmond, USA), the rainbow jersey will be more than ever at the back of everybody’s minds during the two Canadian races.
