Presented from July 6 to 9, the Tour CIBC Charles-Bruneau is meant to reflect the cyclists' commitment to fighting pediatric cancer in Quebec. Under the theme, "This summer, it's my turn to take the Tour," our 25 cyclists departed from Rivière-du-Loup and made subsequent stops in the cities of Lévis, Trois-Rivières and Granby before returning to Montreal in the company of the 80 additional cyclists who joined them on the final day of the Tour.
