MISE À DAY
Author of two retirements during the Grand Prix Cyclistes de Québec and Montréal, respectively on Friday and Sunday, Quebecer Hugo Houle ended his season prematurely on Monday. < /p>
“I expected better from my stay in Quebec,” Houle first wrote in a post on his Instagram account.
“Reality has caught up with me, tired accumulated for the season. That's why I'm stopping the season now to rest. Thank you for your welcome!”

The member of the Israel-Premier Tech team first retired in the Old Capital with just under 40 kilometers remaining in the race. Then, in Montreal, he abdicated on the first lap of a race which had 18.
Despite everything, Houle will be able to make a more than positive assessment of his 2022 season, he who won a stage of the Tour de France, in addition to finishing third in another round of the Grande Boucle. The 31-year-old also finished the Arctic Race in Norway in second place.
