GP de Montréal 2019

The GP de Montreal 2019 takes place on Sunday 15th September in Canada. The one-day race is part of the 2019 UCI World Tour calendar, held just two days after the GP de Quebec. These two races collectively are known as the Laurentian Classics.

The 10th edition of the Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal will once more feature the world’s best teams. It’s a circuit race consisting of demanding climbs and the finishing straight of Avenue du Parc (560 metres at 4% gradient). In total, the hilly route amounts to over 200 km of racing.

The current title holder is Michael Matthews (Team Sunweb), who won the 2018 race ahead of Sonny Colbrelli (Team Bahrain Merida) and Greg Van Avermaet (CCC Team). Matthews also won the GP de Québec just a few days previous, becoming the first rider to win both the Laurentian Classics races in the same year since Simon Gerrans (retired) in 2014.

The 2019 race preview

If last years route was anything to go by, we can expect plenty of hills and attacking opportunities for the peloton. The 2018 route included the Côte Camillien-Houde early on, the 1.8 km climb in Parc du Mont-Royal at 8%, and the Côte de la Polytechnique (780 metres at 6%, and a 200 metres kick at 11%). The finish is once more expected to be at the Avenue du Parc. The race will consist of circuits of a short loop, so each hill will have to be climbed multiple times.

The race has a stellar list of past winners. Before Matthews last year, previous winners include Diego Ulissi (UAE-Team Emirates) in 2017, Greg Van Avermaet in 2016, Tim Wellens (Team Lotto Soudal) in 2015, former World Champion Peter Sagan (Team BORA - hansgrohe) in 2013, Rui Costa (UAE-Team Emirates) in 2011 and Robert Gesink (Team Jumbo-Visma) in 2010.

There has still been no rider to win the GP de Montreal more than once (although Sagan and Costa have come close). Gesink is one of only riders to win both the Quebec and Montreal races (known as the Laurentian double), while Gerrans and Matthews are the only riders to win them both in the same year.

This year, Tim Wellens returns and will be a hot favourite, alongside Gesink. Both will be aiming to reclaim their title from Michael Matthews. Jasper Stuyven (Team Trek - Segafredo) will prove a stern test, while previous winner and last year’s podium finisher Greg Van Avermaet will always be a danger. Elsewhere, threats include previous winner Diego Ulissi, Oliver Naesen (Team AG2R La Mondiale) who finished fourth last year, Michael Valgren (Team Dimension Data) and Edvald Boasson Hagen (Team Dimension Data).
