The Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec is a single day race, first held in 2010. Unlike most classics Québec is a race on a circuit. Totalling at around 200 kilometres, the 8th edition will be held on Friday the 8th of September 2017. The route offers a perfect test for the World Championships in Bergen, Norway. The Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec is the first of the two Canadian one-day Classics held in mid-September offering riders and teams of the UCI WorldTour a less demanding alternative to the three-week long Vuelta a España as they look to peak for the UCI Road World Championships. The Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec and the Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal are the only UCI WorldTour races in North America and so play a key role in the globalisation of professional cycling.

The Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec is an event registered on the UCI WorldTour calendar ensuring, through this prestigious label, the participation of the 18 WordTeams composed of the greatest riders of the planet. This sporting spectacle of the highest level takes place in the heart of the Vieille Capitale, exceptional site for holding this event thanks to its tailor-made relief and its undeniable charm. A unique opportunity to see the world's elite of cycling in action in a most festive and welcoming atmosphere!

The circuit of the Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec will be particularly suitable for punters and regulars on steep slopes. It will be covered 16 times with a most spectacular arrival in coastal Québec.

In 2016 Peter Sagan outsprinted Greg Van Avermaet in Québec, while Anthony Roux finished in third place. Previous winners are Rigoberto Uran (2015), Simon Gerrans (2012 and 2014), Robert Gesink (2013), Philippe Gilbert (2011) and Thomas Voeckler (2010).

Each round begins in a park high above the banks of the Saint Lawrence River – or Fleuve Saint-Laurent, as the French speaking people in Quebec prefer to call the river. At kilometre 4 the route drops to the river bank and continues on the Boulevard de Champlain, which is the flattest section of the race – running from kilometre 5 to kilometre 9.

The last 3.5 kilometres are toughest, beginning with the Côte de la Montagne, a 375 meters climb at 10%. The first lap will be easy, but in the last this will hurt like hell. The steepest stretch is 165 metres at 13%.

The riders race the city walls on the narrow Rue de Remparts, which is overlooking the port. At kilometre 10 the next climb appears. Côte de la Potasse is 420 metres at 9%, quickly followed by a 190 metres climb at 7% on the Montée de la Fabrique. Once atop, the climbing is not done as the last kilometre rises at 4%.

Sixteen laps, sixteen climbs up these short and sharp hills; the Grand Prix de Quebec is a war of attrition.
