Press Release Coutresy of EQUIPE VELOSELECT CYCLING TEAM
Ste Martine Quebec( May 20 2013)
The EQUIPE VELOSELECT CYCLING TEAM team has been busy racing in the GP BROSSARD and The GATINEAU GP in the past three weeks of the month of May. Our team attended the GP Brossard on Sunday May 5th and we wanted to race 100% and leave nothing behind. While spraying the boys legs with KOOLN'FIT and fueling them up with CYTOMAX Pommegrante Berry and using Tangerine Energy drops our boys were ready for battle. The goal was to getting the break and get away so we could be in a better position and sprint from a small group of riders as we didn't have the full team in attendance due to injuries sustained at the IGA DESJARDINS GP STE Martine Race. So our plan was executed and Shawn Turcotte and Rafeal Gagnon went in to the break and eventually caught the peleton and "lapped" the field. The Sprint Finale was within our grasp but it wasn't meant to be a lapped rider wasn't pulled and caused chaos in his sprint to the line. Luckily Shawn Turcotte stayed upright and had to brake fiercely and start to sprint again on his RHUS Wheels equipped with MAXXIS COMET Tires with our first W of the season within grasp.Shawn finished fourth just off of the podium and didn't crash.
So after drinking MUSCLE MILK for Recovery our boys regrouped for the GP GATINEAU in GATINEAU Quebec on Saturday May 18 2013.
We had 7 riders in attendance and would see if our wounded warriors were healing in this fast paced race. All the teams were represented except for Andre Cycle KAYCAN RDS. So we would see how the race went. It was very hot for a may long weekend and a lot of CYTOMAX was used to help refuel our athletes. So our team took the bull by the horns and were attacking but nothing would stick until three riders went clear sans our team. So we were the only team to attempting to organize a catch of the break. But there was no cooperation and when the boys got other teams to finally lend a hand it too little to late. So Espoirs Qullicot TRJ telecom and a few others chased the break a few other riders joined it but it was gonna be a sprint from the break of the 7 riders which also included a few senior three's as well. Our rider Miguel Lukaszewicz on his Team issue PROLOGUE SUBIACO equipped with RHUS Wheels racing on MAXXIS TIRES did a lot of work finished a strong tenth. Along with Francis Bertrand 12th and Wil Etherington 18th after lending a hand in catching the break. We now regroup and look forward to our next events GP ST Raymond and GP Charelvoix.
Thanks for reading and until next time

May 1 2013-(Ste Martine Quebec)
The EQUIPE VELOSELECT CYCLING TEAM took part in the IGA/DESJARDINS GP Ste Martine on Sunday April 28 2013. Our guys were ready as all of the junior teams were in attendance Our riders were prepared for battle as the the combined junior/senior 3 peleton totaled 107. The boys were prepared to chase and get in the breakaways and if it came down to a sprint we also could play that card. The early break with Shawn Turcotte didn't stick but 2 Rocky Mountain Lessard Bicycles riders did. So Miguel Lukaszewicz attacked on his PROLOGUE SUBIACO equipped with RHUS WHEELS. He was soon joined by a few other riders both Juniors and Senior 3's. The group of seven including the original Rocky Mountain Lessard Bicycles riders now contained Miguel and other teams were represented. So the peleton didn't react and the break was successful going up the road Unfortunately a big crash occurred on the third lap and took half of our guys down. So nothing was broken but their pride to contribute the teams effort to gain a W on the day. Our team was using the CYTOMAX Pommegrante Berry Electrolyte and CYTOMAX Berry Drops to fuel their race performance throughout the day.As the temperatures were in the 20's a hot day compared to the 2012 edition and the 2011 edition were it was snowing in the morning then cleared up in the afternoon this was a gorgeous day!! Miguel and the others got caught on the final lap as they couldn't sustain their pace so the peleton captialized on this and reeled them in. In the finale it was bunch sprint won by Simon Ouellet of Rocky Mountain Lessard Bicycles.We had Shawn Turcotte place 7th Rapael Gagnon 8th, and Miguel Lukaszewicz 10th. Laurent Levasseur was thirteenth in the sprint. So three riders in the top ten and one rider in the top 15th. It was a good team effort by our guys and we will continue to build momentum each race.
