David Veilleux... FORZA!




Impressive performance today by Canadian David Veilleux (Europcar) soloing to victory in the little known, Tre Valli Varesine (198.5km) in Luino, Italy!

Here is the exciting video including the Italian play by play with 11 kms remaining. I don't understand Italian but the excitement is riveting.



After his teammate Thomas Voeckler tried his patented attacks and was reeled in, Veilleux made his own attack and stayed out in front with 17 kms left. He made his attack stick to win.

With today's excellent win, David Veilleux wins the overall classification of the Trittico Lombardo (Lombardy Triptych) the three-day race held around Lombardy. His other two races are 24th in the Coppa Bernocchi and 42nd in the Coppa Agostini. He becomes the only North American and Canadian to win this three-day race.

Let's not forget, compatriot Francois Parisien (SpiderTech) put in a stunning ride today to finish 4th and  provides a unique Canadian one-two!


Monster Ride!


The 24-year old David Veilleux is on a winning streak, last week Veilleux won the Mi-Aout en Bretagne stage race in France.... what a stunning performance!
