Spotlight on David Veilleux

Those of us who are regular fans of the Mardis Cyclistes series have been spoiled over the years by the numerous stars and rising stars who have shown up to participate in this race. From Floyd Landis (who finished first at the 2006 Tour de France before being disqualified) to home grown talent who have risen to the International stage like Dominique Rollin, we have seen them race right here on the streets of Lachine in what has become a classic event that continues to attract some of the very best cyclists in the world.

David Veilleux, from Cap Rouge, Quebec is yet another cyclist that we still have the luxury of watching live occasionally on Tuesday nights. Surely it's only a matter of time before the European pro circuit takes him away for good so come watch him race while you still have the chance.

Below is a series of 11 consecutive photos taken On Tuesday June 14th during Stage 2 of the Mardis Cyclistes series capturing  David Veilleux in full flight winning a sprint lap over defending Mardis Cyclistes champion Jean-Francois Laroche.
