    Some of the world’s most renowned cyclists convened in Montreal this weekend for the third edition Grand Prix Cycliste de Montréal.

    One of the only two stops in North America for the International Cycling Union (UCI) World Tour, the event featured some of the biggest names in the sport, including Andy Schleck, Thomas Voeckler and Canadian Ryder Hesjedal, the most recent winner of the Giro D’Italia.

    Hesjedal finished 23rd on Sunday, while former Norwegian champion and Team Sky member Lars-Petter Nordhaug claimed the top spot on the podium, earning his team’s 100th UCI event victory in the process.

  • Best Photos of the Week: October 25 to 31

    Each week The Link’s photographers cover tons of events, but only a small fraction of the pictures they take ever make it to print due to space constraints. In fact, sometimes the best photos are the ones left aside—simply because they don’t fit with the story, or describe it visually less well than another shot. With that in mind, we’ve decided to run some of the also-rans online, to give you a taste of the hard work our intrepid and talented photogs put in for the paper.

    Here are our best photos this week.
