The front of the pack tucks into a curve on the Plains of Abraham near the Edwin Bélanger Bandstand.

Over the course of 3 hours and 25 minutes, some 140 cyclists zipped through nine soaking circuits in Quebec City, racking up a total of 130.5 soggy kilometres. All afternoon, rain fell unabated as the peloton rolled along Grand Allée, through the Plains of Abraham, down Côte de Sillery, along Boulevard Champlain, up Côte de la Montagne and through Vieux-Québec.
