"The cyclists are friends who regularly ride together and were en route
to Sherbrooke Friday morning as part of their training for the triathlon
season, police said. The group is affiliated with Cycle Beausoleil,
based in nearby St-Lambert.
It's not yet clear what caused the accident or how many bikes were
directly struck by the truck. The group was training at the same time as
a faster pack of riders who were farther down the road.
The weather on Friday was cloudy, but no rain was reported in the
morning. Traffic highway was rerouted while police processed evidence
from the crash scene."
