To support frontline workers in the current COVID-19 pandemic, ISN Pro Rider James Piccoli will take on a big challenge. The Canadian climber will be climbing ´Camilien Houde Ave´, the road that leads to the summit of Mount Royal, as many times as possible in twelve hours.
In recognition of frontline heroes who relentlessly work 12+ hour shifts to combat this pandemic, James will be raising funds to donate much-needed masks and sanitary supplies (hand sanitizer, disinfectant) to facilities in need around Montreal. Facilities will be selected based on need amongst CHSLDs, hospitals, and NPOs such as homeless shelters.
Piccoli expects to ride the Camilien Houde Ave, the local climb where he is very familiar with, approximately 100 times. “It will be a long day in the saddle for me (320km, 12.000m elevation!) but our nurses and doctors do this every day for us!”
Ultimately Piccoli will also achieve the Everesting Challenge, climbing 8848 meters in one day time riding up and down the same climb till the number of height meters is reached.
Piccoli partnered up with ´Groupe Laudie´ for this challenge. They kicked the donation off with 1000 disposable 3 ply masks, 100 KN95 masks, 10 cases of 4*5 L concentrated disinfectant, 10 cases of Soapopular – alcohol-free hand sanitizer (COVID 19 authorized by health Canada).
All funds raised will be used to purchase additional masks/disinfectants for donations at our cost price. No profit will be made by Groupe Laudie.
