Quebec City’s David Veilleux has become one of just a handful of Canadians to be selected for the Tour de France cycling marathon.

Rene Bernaudeau, CEO of the France-based Europcar cycling team, confirmed that his 26-year-old rider will travel to Corsica on June 29 for the start of the race.

“He’s one of the four most reliable (riders) on our team,” Bernaudeau said Monday.
