I don't seem to be able to reach you by phone or fax, have your numbers changed?
Both numbers are seasonal and on line from April to mid-August. Since the telephone
and fax are located at our headquarters a volunteer retrieves the messages and faxes occasionally.
Do not worry if it takes a bit of time before we reply to a message or a fax. However, someone
is there to answer calls the weekend of the event.
Does one need a license to participate?
Yes, the race is sanctioned by the QuebecCycling Federation (FQSC) and it requires all racers to have a valid license. However, it is possible to purchase an event license for $20, see details below.
The FQSC can supply an event license to Canadians only. Applicants will be covered for civil liabilities and accident insurance.
RESIDENTS FROM OUTSIDE CANADA
The FQSC cannot issue and event license for anyone not resident in Canada. You must hold a valid INTERNATIONAL LICENSE to participate.

Can I participate in the stages of my choice?
The Championship is a stage race. Each stage must be completed within time delays in order
for a racer to be allowed to start in the next one. An exception applies to the Hillclimb on Friday
because it is considered a prologue. That means that a racer can miss the prologue but take the start of
stage 2. However, when this happens a racer forfeits the possibility of winning the title of Champion that is the result of the cumulative time of the four stages.
May I pay on site?
Certainly, but that will prolong registration time on the day of the race. Racers who have
sent in their registration form but that haven't paid aren't officialy entered on the race list. No
bib is assigned to them, no racer package is prepared for them. So, they must wait in line to pay,
then wait until the package is completed, etc. Since 300 racers pass through headquarters between
1 and 5 pm on race day it is preferable to have finalised the transaction before then.
