Switching discipline isn’t an easy task. When local Quebec athlete Laurie Arseneault got into Cyclocross as an attempt to stay competitive in the cross-country offseason, we couldn’t have known just how tough she would be.

Between the rain, ankles injuries, school, and work, she proved everybody that she is one tough woman and that nothing can get in her way.

Laurie has made her way to the podium a few times during this CX season, but this weekend at the 7th and 8th rounds of the Série de CycloCross Maglia Rosa, everything came together, not only did she take the win at Saturday’s Round 7 event, she went back the next day with her Jake the Snake and won her second gold medal at Round 8.

With only three races to wrap up this season, she sits firmly on the second step of the overall Elite women in the provincial championship.

Allez Laurie !!
