MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 02/11/13 -- Quebecor
(TSX:QBR.A)(TSX:QBR.B) is pleased to be associated with the La
Quebecoise and La Montrealaise cyclosportives as official media
partner. The two mass participation cycling events will be held on
September 12 and 14, 2013, before the Quebec City and Montreal Grands
Prix Cyclistes, which are part of the UCI WorldTour. The partnership
continues Quebecor's long tradition of support for cycling, a sport
that now has many thousands of fans and practitioners in Quebec.  
"Quebecor is already the proud official broadcaster of the UCI
WorldTour Grands Prix Cyclistes pro events held in Quebec, two elite
races that help put Quebec on the world stage," said Pierre Karl
Peladeau, President and CEO of Quebecor and an avid cy
clist. "The La
Quebecoise and La Montrealaise cyclosportives give all Quebec amateur
cyclists a chance to test their skills on courses designed by and for
world-class professional athletes. Quebecor's support for both the
pro and amateur events responds to the growing popularity of cycling
in Quebec and its increasingly passionate following."  
As the official media partner, Quebecor will promote the
cyclosportives by leveraging the synergies among its subsidiaries,
including TVA Group and its TVA Sports channel, Le Journal de
Montreal, Le Journal de Quebec and 24 Heures.  
Quebecor's involvement is in keeping with its longstanding commitment
to cycling. Quebecor regularly covers cycling events on all its media
platforms, the only media group in Quebec to do so. For years,
Quebecor has partnered with a number of other major cycling events in
Quebec, including the Grand Defi Pierre Lavoie, the Granfondo
Garneau-Cascades, the Tour CIBC Charles-Bruneau and others. Quebecor
is also the proud sponsor of the Garneau-Quebecor team, which was
considered Canada's best amateur cycling team in 2012 and named team
of the year in Quebec. 2013 promises to be an exciting year for
supporters of the Garneau-Quebecor team as it joins the pro UCI
Continental Tour.
