Back for the 2nd year at the Canada Cup Mont Tremblant 2014 edition of this great mountain bike race. The first thing that stuck me as I climbed up Tremblant was how far behind we are in terms of foliage compared to last year. This is testament to what a long, cold winter we had. The lack of leaves and greenery made the photography a little more difficult but the athletes made up for it.

Raphaël Gagné showed us all what a major force he’s become. He had a fantastic fall during CX season in 2013 and has not let up during the winter winning the men’s Elite event over long time Canadian fixture Geoff Kabush. Quebec’s Leandre Bouchard finished 3rd.

Katherine Pendral won the women’s event with Sandra Walter coming in second and our very own Andréanne Pichette rounding out the podium.

Here are some of my favourite photos from the Canada Cup in Mont Tremblant 2014.
