May 24, 2016 (Mont-Tremblant, QC) – Thousands of cyclists will be in Mont-Tremblant this coming weekend for the fourth edition of the Gran Fondo Mont-Tremblant. The organizing committee is putting the finishing touches on the four courses, which range from 45km to 160km, to ensure that riders enjoy the best possible conditions. The event can accommodate up to 2,000 participants and is almost sold out.
“The word has spread and we will be welcoming participants from across Canada and even from the United States,” said Simon St-Arnaud, GFMT producer. “This has become an event not to be missed to start the cycling season, and appears to be a winning formula for a great number of cycling fans.”
