    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 ...

    Richie Porte takes the victory in the 7th stage of Paris-Nice, Sergio Henao takes yellowAnother mountain stage full of surprises in Paris-Nice today, in the area around Nice. After a long breakaway, especially for Lilian Calmejane who was taken back only in the final climb (which allowed him to take the polka dot jersey of the King of the Mountains classification), the favourites of the race came up in the final part of the stage and Richie Porte (BMC Racing Team) finally won it. Sergio Henao (Team Sky) also had a good day since he took the lead in the general classification.

    The victory in the last sprinters stage of Paris-Nice 2017 for André Greipel

    The victory in the last sprinters stage of Paris-Nice 2017 for André GreipelThe 5th stage of Paris-Nice 2017 was not only the longuest of this 75th edition of the race, but also the last one which could work out for the sprinters. The peloton thus perfectly managed the early breakaway and caught it back in time for the bunch sprint to take place. This time André Greipel (Lotto-Soudal) ended victoriously in this game, for the second time in his career in the Race to the sun!

    The summary of the 5th stage of Paris-Nice 2017: Quincié-en-Beaujolais > Bourg-de-Péage
