Start of the 2012 Road Para-Cycling Season

The 2012 Para-cycling road season has officially started with the presentation of the time trial race at the Défi Sportif Alter-Ego, a race which went ahead despite frigid temperatures as Montreal is hit with a cold front.
 
Riders from several countries converged at the Gilles Villeneuve racetrack for the night races, braving extremely cold temperatures.

Rising star and Paralympic games hopeful Marie-Ève Croteau of Québec, QC and Shelley Gautier of Toronto, ON both two-time World Champions, rode to the first and second place respectively in the tricycle category. Both riders were riding on their new custom-built bikes for the very first time in a race, thanks to a partnership with Cycles Marinoni
