Your Sunday Plan: Lex Albrecht vs Georges Laraque, the Camilien-Houde ascent.
We don’t exactly know in what context, but retired pro hockey player Georges Laraque decided to challenge Lex Albrecht, Canadien National Cycling team member and current champion in cycling in Quebec, to a bike race. Yup.
The challenge is an ascent of the Camilien-Houde way, from the base of the hill (after the last set of lights) to the crest.
We have know idea if Georges Laraque knows that Camilien-Houde is probably the hardest climb in Montreal, but we wish him luck, ’cause Lex surely knows that climb like the back of her hand. Don’t underestimate the technical aspect of a big climb, Georges.
For those who want to check out the race, it’s starts Sunday, November 16th, at 10AM. However, show up a bit before to make sure you don’t miss anything!
