Sicard volunteers for sprint challenge

24 riders will battle it out this evening to win the new event on tap in Canada: the Challenge Sprint Pro, a knock-out sprint competition held on a one-kilometre course in downtown Québec. The event is thought to be similar to that of a sprint event you see on the track and will feature many of the peloton's most explosive riders. And Romain Sicard. With no sprinters on Euskaltel's plane to Canada, the team asked for a volunteer, and the French youngster kindly put his hand up. It'll sure be interesting to see how a climber like Sicard fares against the world's fastest riders. Tune in to Eurosport tonight to find out.
