Will Gesink be saluting again this year in Quebec?

The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) has made expanding competitive cycling around the world one of its primary objectives. 

The results have been the incredibly successful Tour Down Under and the new 2011 Tour of Beijing, but on tap for this week are the Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec on Friday September 9 and the Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal on Sunday September 11. 

Last year’s inaugural events resulted in a solo win for Robert Gesink in Québec which set Gesink up for an impressive fall campaign, and a win by Thomas Voeckler in Montréal featuring his trademark attack on the final climb after the break had been caught.

The start lists contain some of the sport’s biggest stars, but here are 10 riders to watch out for this weekend in Canada.
