The Garneau Factory Team has been busy racing around the US and Canada. Check below for some highlights from the month of June!
The team headed to Philly for the UCI Parx Cycling Classic. This was a very tough day on the bike where the riders would battle up the infamous Manayunk Wall 5 times to the finish. Pictured below is the start of the race.
Next up, the ladies traveled to Canada for the UCI Grand Prix de Gatineau. The team worked tremendously together for a 2nd place photo finish out of a breakaway and an 11th place overall from the field sprint. A truly epic day on the bike and best UCI finish for The Garneau Factory Team.

There was no time to rest as the team made their way to The North Star Grand Prix in Minnesota. This stage race featured 6 races over 5 days. It proved a test of the riders and our equipment as the first day alone had nearly 12 crashes in the 110 person women’s crit. Overall the ladies ended the week in one piece with smiles on their faces. Pictured below was taken after the 4th stage.
