Benoit Cosnefroy broke away from the pack on the last lap to win the 11th edition of the Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec on Friday.
Michael Matthews, the two-time defending champion, finished second, just four seconds behind. Biniam Girmay finished just behind the Aussie in third place.
“It’s incredible. I’m not sure what happened but I didn’t think I could win like that,” Cosnefroy said at the finish.
“I wanted to attack and it was planned but we had Greg van Avermaet for the sprint so I was to play my cards first and it worked out. I’m really happy to win here.”
