March 19, 2008 (Montreal, QC) – Team EVA Devinci is proud to announce that Domnique Perras will be part of its lineup for the upcoming season. Perras will join the rest of the squad for a high quality race program, which will include major events like the Tour de Beauce and the Canadian National Championships, which will take place in Quebec again in 2008.
With his extensive experience and a solid palmarÃ¨s, Dominique will be a major asset to the team from the Saguenay region. The 2003 Canadian National Road Champion will undoubtedly help the EVA-Devinci colors shine on the podium during the 2008 season on many occasions. He will also be a great help in helping to develop younger riders on the squad, who will have the chance to get hands-on mentorship from a rider with many years of experience racing for pro teams in Europe and North America. Cycles Devinci is also very excited to be working with Perras in keeping with its dedication of building cutting edge bikes with a lifetime warranty.
“I am very happy to be joining a high level team that hails from my home province of Quebec. It will allow me to spend more time with my family, which is very important to me. Team EVA-Devinci’s race program includes many great events which are main objectives for me, which gives me strong motivation for 2008. Also, I’m at a point in my cycling career where I really want to help up-and-coming cyclists and being on a team with so many young talented riders will allow me to achieve that,” said Perras.
