The GP Brossard is a 75 minute crit on a circuit around a school in Brossard.  Shawn Marc and Luc attended this race, and it was going to be a good test of fitness with a large, 70 man field, and many of Montreal’s best riders in attendance.  Riders such as Tour of Missouri stage winner Martin Gilbert and some of his Spider tech team mates where there as well as a strong representation from the Louis Garneau team.  As Marc had previously warned us the first 5 laps were extremely hard, as attacks tried to get off the front with little success.  The race started to stabilize a little after this but the pace was still high, as we finished with an average of 45 km/h.  About 30 minutes in a group of 10 riders started to distance the field and it became obvious that the race was going up the road. With the two major teams represented and some negative racing from the peloton, many attacks were made, but few if any had success making it up the road.  All three of the Scott boys finished in the main group Luc 24th Marc 39th and Shawn 41st.  While the result was not one that the team will remember, this race provided valuable experience in a high level crit as well as great deal of motivation to improve.  We have now seen what it takes to succeed at this level and are excited to work to be able to be more involved in race of this level in the future.

Scott racing would also like to congratulate Shaun A. on his first win of season in a stage of the velocity stage race.
