Cyclists raced down and up Gilmour Hill, the most demanding section of the biking leg of the Pentathlon. One person going down the hill, fell and slid before he came to a halt in the upcoming lane. Luckily, no one else was injured. Besides this, the entire race was a complete success.

Winter athletes competing in Quebec’s 13th Pentathlon des Neiges had perfect weather conditions on the second and final weekend of the event. During the races held from February 25 to March 5, amateurs, families and friends took advantage of their Spring Break to participate in the five sports on the Plains of Abraham.
