Québec know-how honoured in Paris

On June 29, some 50 people invited by Investissement Québec had the privilege of meeting with Argon 18 Founder Gervais Rioux in Paris to learn more about the expertise behind the global success of the company’s high-performance bicycles.

Michel Robitaille, Québec’s Delegate General in France, Gervais Rioux, President of Argon 18, and David Brulotte, Investissement Québec’s representative in Paris.


Before his captivated audience, Gervais Rioux described the cutting-edge expertise and ingenuity behind the global success of his company’s high-performance bikes. As a former Olympian and three-time Canadian champion with over 150 professional victories to his credit, Rioux also spoke about his passion for cycling and his business’s astounding growth.


Again this year, these Québec-designed bicycles will take to the roads as part of the prestigious Tour de France. Thanks to tailored financing from Investissement Québec and personalized support, Argon 18 has won over the international market, particularly by working in partnership with the BORA-Argon 18 professional cycling team.
