The 2014 Global Relay Canadian Road Cycling Championships road races are expected to be spectacular this year, with the top Canadian riders coming together to compete for the coveted red and white jerseys.
The 2014 Global Relay Canadian Road Cycling Championships road races will feature the best Canadian women on two wheels, and a large group of professional and amateur cyclists will take to the streets of Lac Mégantic to showcase the strength and power of women cycling in this country.
Joëlle Numainville (Montreal, QC) of Optum-Kelly Benefits displayed an exceptional showcase of talent last year, winning last year both the Canadian Championships in the time trial and the road races. However, Numainville will not be racing this year (due to illness), opening the door to this powerful group of women to crown a new Champion.
Denise Ramsden (Vancouver, BC) of Optum-Kelly Benefit will be looking to repeat her win from 2012 on the same circuit after taking off with Clara Hughes on a two-woman breakaway that lasted to the finish line. Ramsden will have two teammates around her in Leah Kirchmann (Chelsea, QC), the defending Canadian Criterium Champion, and Annie Ewart (Victoria, BC).
