In September 2019 the National Cycling Center in Bromont might be under construction…for a good reason! We’ve been working hard to find the money to fully cover the track so world class riding could happen 12 months a year. A project that locals and riders across Canada are very excited about!
If this happens, 100B7 start and finish will have to move…
We won’t go very far but we will let you know in March. Thank you for understanding. For more information about the velodrome, news and how you can help: VELODROME
Our Butterfly: Heidi Myers, our Butterfly the last 2 years after being diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson’s, will be passing the flag but will still be there with her amazing waffles on behalf of Rasputitsa. Not to be missed! More about HEIDI from Bicycling Magazine.
Our 2019 Butterfly will be my lifelong best friend Rachel Lauziere that is undergoing treatment for breast cancer and it hasn’t been easy. She found athletics later in life, competing in triathlons and even finishing Ironman Tremblant. She wants to give back and leave that cancer in the desert…An adventure that had to be postponed because of ongoing health reasons. Read more about RACHEL
We encourage 100B7 participants to consider donating to The Shelley Gautier Foundation. An Olympian teammate of mine in London 2012, her para-sport Foundation helps provide people with disabilities the chance to discover para-cycling across Canada. In this case, Quebec as the money will stay in the province. My time with para-cycling showed me that para-athletes are full of soul and have no limits when given a chance to become an athlete.
