The Série de cyclocross Maglia Rosa #9 – Montréal is the 2nd to last Maglia Rosa CX race of this series. The final is in Laval. I had seen on social media that Raphaël Gagné would be making the trip down to Montreal. That with the usual top riders such as Cadieux Duval and Daigle, the race promised to be exciting.

And so it was. The top trio breaking away after about two laps and it held pretty tight until the end. Daigle falling off and then climbing back several times. In the end Cadieux pulled off what I think is an upset win.

Just as we were packing up, I took a quick look at my phone to see the weather radar and quickly realized it was going to pour rain. Sure enough, not but 5 minutes after the end of the race, the clouds opened up and down it poured.

Here are some of my favorite shots from the Série de cyclocross Maglia Rosa #9 – Montréal
