    Laurent Pichon wins the Classic Loire-Atlantique 2017 ahead of Thomas Boudat - summaryIt doesn't happen very often that the Classic Loire Atlantique ends in a bunch sprint, but that's what almost happened this afternoon in La Haye Fouassière, even though Laurent Pichon (Fortuneo-Vital Concept) didn't want that to happen when he got away from the peloton in the last few kilometers, to finally win the race with only a few meters ahead on the second placed rider, Thomas Boudat (Direct Energie)!

    The summary of the Classic Loire-Atlantique 2017

    The 18th edition of the Classic Loire-Atlantique was 182.8 kilometers long, in 11 laps on a circuit around La Haye Fouassière, as usual these past few years. The race thus as usual started and finished in La Haye Fouassière, not far from Nantes. La Haye Fouassière would like to get the French cycling championships to come their way in 2019!

    Quite quickly after the start, in the first lap, Marc Fournier (FDJ) broke away from the peloton, joined in his effort by Kévin Le Cunff (HP BTP-Auber 93) and Beno ...

In the breakaway during that race in the north of France, the rider from the south of France didn't manage to take the race victory as his birthday present.

    Under a generous sun, the Tro Bro Léon 2015 got off from Lannilis late this morning. Rapidly, three riders attacked, Dan Craven (Team Europcar), Benjamin Giraud (Team Marseille 13-KTM) and Julien Duval (Equipe Cycliste de l'Armée de Terre) but this leading trio didn't manage to stay ahead for long.

    Pierrick Fédrigo holds on till the finish in Cholet Pays de Loire 2015In the 38th edition of Cholet Pays de Loire, a very big breakaway group was formed early in the race and the riders who were not part of this group saw their possible hopes for victory go away rather quickly. Indeed, all the teams were part of this breakaway and there was thus not much chasing going on. After different attacks from the breakaway, Pierrick Fédrigo (Bretagne-Séché Environnement) finally got off alone in the final circuit and the French rider managed to win the race, 10 years later ...

    The summary of the Classic Loire Atlantique 2015

    The first part of the race, which started just before noon in La Haye Fouassière, was a bit disturbed by some rain and right from the first lap, the peloton broke up in two. Despite an initial junction, the peloton split up again in the 3rd lap, before a small breakaway got away with Hugo Houle (AG2R La Mondiale), Kévin Reza (FDJ),Bryan Nauleau (Europcar) and Julien Duval (Equipe Cycliste de l'Armée de Terre).
