Introduction

I am a professional athlete (road & track cycling) and entrepreneur. My background isn’t standard. Growing up in various competitive sports, I got introduced to cycling at 15 years old and found a deep passion with the sport. At 20, I started a five day annual stage race, the Tour de Québec, with the goal of supporting my cycling career. Rather than serve my career, it was quite demanding, but I have learned several lessons. I invite you to follow my journey on www.lachance.me
