Aurélien Paret-Peintre: "A solid and balanced team
"After the abandonment on the morning of the sixteenth stage of the Tour de France, I took the time to breathe and recover from Covid-19.
The recovery was good with a top 10 (10th) in the general classification of the Tour Poitou-Charentes (August 23-26) and an offensive race in the Bretagne Classic (August 28).
I am still very motivated for the end of the season and especially for the Grand Prix of Quebec and Montreal.
These are two really great races from a sporting point of view but also from an organizational point of view. I had the chance to do them in 2019 and I could see the incredible fervor of the fans who were so much in favor of our cause. This enthusiasm is great and I think that after two years of absence, it will be even stronger!
We will go to Canada with ambition and a solid and balanced team around Benoît (Cosnefroy) and Greg (Van Avermaet).
I hope we get a podium finish before heading back to Europe where a great Italian week will end the season."[/su_quote]
The number: 9
In eight appearances at the Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec and Montreal, Greg Van Avermaet has been on the podium nine times.

He has finished second in the Grand Prix de Québec four times (2012, 2016, 2017 and 2018) and third twice (2013 and 2019).
