June 10, 2013 – David Veilleux’s Europcar team has finally confirmed that the 25-year-old Quebecker is officially on the squad’s 2013 Tour de France roster after several unconfirmed reports and speculation that came on the heels of the Cap-Rouge native’s big victory on Stage 1 of the Critérium du Dauphiné last week. Read the story here. Veilleux’s attendance at the TdF will make him the first Quebecker in 76 years to contest the most famous of all the grand tours.

Read Veilleux’s announcement (translated from French) posted on his blog this morning confirming his attendance at this year’s TdF below.


I’ll be at the Tour de France!

It is now official. My team chose me to participate in the 2013 Tour de France. I am extremely pleased with this news. This is a childhood dream come true and this is the reward for all my years of perseverance and discipline. The Tour is the ultimate cycling event, but it is also seen as one of the world’s most demanding sporting events. At the same time, I would like to thank my family and all those who helped me over the years to achieve my dream, especially my fiancee, who has always been there to support me. By the start, June 29, I will get well and gain strength to get ready to support my teammates Thomas Voeckler and Pierre Rolland on the roads of France.

– David Veilleux
