Australian champion Simon Gerrans has become the first rider in history to complete the Canadian double today, backing up his Québec victory on Friday with another impressive win at the Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal today.
In another impressive team effort, the ORICA-GreenEDGE outfit dominated the final kilometres of the 205.7km WorldTour race, a complete lead-out still present despite a hugely reduced field.
“I couldn’t have asked any more of the team again today,” Gerrans said.
“We set out a plan at the start of the day, everyone followed it perfectly and the race unfolded exactly as we wanted.
“To still have four or five teammates there coming into the final was amazing so I am just really happy to be able to finish off some great teamwork again.”
