I have gladly agreed to take on the role of ambassador of the Paracycling World Cup Finale of the 2018 UCI Route. Being from Baie-Comeau, it is a pleasure to come back home and reunite with the people from my hometown while promoting the sport that I love.
When I participated in the paracycling World Cup event of 2012 as well as in the World Championships of 2013 that were both held in Baie-Comeau, I took great pride in the warm welcome that the crowds dedicated to the participants. Once again, you will have the opportunity to show them how proud you are to be hosting such a great event.
By associating myself with the organization and promoting paracycling, I wish to arouse many people's curiosity which, I hope, shall contribute to the visibility of this sport that, in my opinion, lacks exposure.
In closing, I am convinced that hosting the Paracycling World Cup Finale of the UCI Route for a second time around will help develop the sport. Indeed, this window will allow, on one hand, for people living with a disability to see all the potentiel they behold, and on the other hand, for the population to see that they are full , complete athletes. Because that's what they are !
