It was a strong season from the 22-year-old rider from Quebec, who finished fourth at the U23 Road Race World Championship in September.

Houle also won a stage and the overall classification of the Tour of Quebec in July in what was a campaign that saw him demonstrate his development following three consecutive Canadian National Championship wins at U23 level.

The Canadian, who has represented Team SpiderTech, finished second overall in the Tour de Beauce in a strong international field, and took the best climber jersey in the Coupe des Nations Ville de Saguenay.
