Last November, the Fédération québécoise des sports cyclistes honoured Vélirium with the award for Top International Event of the Year! For the 27th year running, thousands of fans turned out at Mont-Sainte-Anne to cheer on some 374 athletes from 33 countries competing in the UCI World Cup races.
As well as hosting the Downhill and Cross-Country World Cups, Vélirium features a varied program of events designed to promote the development of the sport. Amateur cyclists are spoiled for choice, whatever discipline they like to ride. Just some of the fringe events are the Vélikidz race presented by Normandin Restaurants, the Vélo Mag Raid presented by Camelbak and the GAAP Enduro presented by Rocky Mountain.
