Simon Gerrans wins Grand Prix Cycliste de Quebec

Australian Simon Gerrans (Orica-GreenEdge) won the 2012 edition of Grand Prix Cycliste de Quebec in Canada on Friday from a late escape, putting his name forward as one of the favourites for the World Championships road race later this month.

Gerrans followed an attack in the last four kilometres by Greg Van Avermaet (BMC Racing) and the two distanced the much reduced peloton to duke it out for the victory. Rui Costa (Movistar) led home the best of the rest for third place.
