Nippour/Devinci junior road team
Team presentation | Jonquière – The 2010 crop of the new Nippour/Devinci Team has all the elements to deliver some nice surprises. This was the view of Pierre Bourgeois, who has agreed to continue his mandate at the helm of the team that is the most representative of the region since its creation.

Indeed, the 2010 edition has "a great wealth of the region" with five riders from Saguenay/Lac-St-Jean and two others from Amos (Abitibi). “Those guys went to the school of hard knocks, and now that’s why they’re tough guys!” joked Mr. Bourgeois at the unveiling of the new team. The crew will be relying on veteran riders Jacob Bouchard (Chicoutimi) and Jordan Brochu (Amos); three rookies from the Alma Proco Club, Thomas Folly, Jérémie Lavoie-Doyon and Simon-Pierre Maltais; as well as on Alexandre Tremblay of the Acidose Lactique Club and Charles Matte from Amos. “Expectations will be high for our two veteran riders since they both had terrific seasons last year. Jordan had several podium finishes and was a member of the Quebec team and the Tour de l'Abitibi. He was one of the great revelations of the past season. As for Jacob, he really took off after a slow start to the season. He took part in the Tour de l'Abitibi and was the runner-up in the Canadian Road Cycling Championship. It really boosted his confidence and from that point on, he never looked back. He’s just back from a few weeks of European professional training where he gained experience and confidence. He also feels in great shape.” The other five riders are all rookies, but Pierre Bourgeois believes they can hold their ground and stand out, “Last year, we had a few surprises with Jordan and I think that some of the rookie riders could very well do the same. They sure have the potential to do it. They’re serious and well trained. They snow-shoed all winter long and already have more than 1000 km under their belt.” All of this should help for the year’s first competition that takes place in two weeks: the Sainte-Martine Grand Prix.

Supporting Pierre Bourgeois in his role will be Eric Jacques who returns after having worked with him in the first edition. “We will be sharing the load. Eric complements us nicely and brings some stability” the technical director commented.
