From the Promoter:

La Classique des Appalaches—or Appalachian Classic—was created to allow riders in Eastern Canada and the U.S. Northeast to extend and end the season in grand style. Among the most unique and challenging one-day races in North America, it comprises ascents reaching over 2,700 meters (8,860 ft) and an epic journey some 135 km (84 mi.) both on asphalt (90 km/56 mi.) and graded dirt roads (45 km/28 mi.).

The jewel in its crown has to be the finish atop Mount Arthabaska, a rise of 2.6 km/1.6 mi. at 6.7%, including a beautiful 300 meters at 12%! Well worth the $15,000 in prizes—and the mythic immortalization—awaiting the winners. Oh, and the first to cross the finish line will also be rewarded by receiving their weight in maple syrup… kind of a sweet deal!
