The Tour de l’Abitibi, an international cycling race, welcomes 150 riders annually in an intense competition. The Tour is a recognized and coveted event around the world, as it is the only one of the nine UCI Junior Nations Cup events to be presented in America. During its 51-year history, the Tour has welcomed participants from more than 40 countries and continues to be an excellent springboard for aspiring cyclists in the professional ranks.

Presented jointly for two days, the Tour de la Relève welcomes girls and boys between the ages of 6 and 16 from Quebec’s next generation of cyclists. The Tour de la Relève is the fourth stage in a five-race series of the Quebec Cup, powered by the Grand Prix Cyclistes de Québec and Montréal.
