The 2016 Paris-Nice race was another one for the record books. Colloquially named, "The Race to the Sun", this year's event threw a few less-than-pleasant days to the riders before they finally met the aforementioned sun and warmer climes of France's Riviera coastline. Using the newly-minted UCI rule to protect riders from ridiculous weather conditions, the race featured its fair share of yuck, berk, wt&^!, and (*()*(*&ER)(&Q on its eventual arrival in Nice, France. 

Antoine is a guy who grew up in a typical Quebec family, in the town of Chicoutimi, north of Quebec. No one could have predicted he would become such a great cyclist.

Antoine wore our Course Air Lite shoes, tested in all three Grand Tours, for his adventure.

See what they are all about!

Through it all, Antoine stuck with it, first surviving the crap weather to eventually snag a few nice breakaway mountain leader's points, get the lead in the classification, consolidate it and finally defend it with a ballsy ride in the final stage.

Discover Antoine's story in this #LiveYourDream episode.

Great job, Antoine!  We are proud of you!
