In the Classic de l'Indre we saw a group of 4 riders get away from the peloton today, after about fifty kilometers in the race and this group was taken back only after the first crossing of the finish line.

The summary of the Classic de l'Indre 2014
At the start of the 11th edition of the Classic de l'Indre, 157 riders were perfectly aware of the fact that, despite of the number of laps on the circuit being reduced to 3, the race would end in a sprint.
The riders left Châteauroux under a beautiful sun, towards the kilometer 0 in Ardentes. Rapidly after the start there were several breakaway attempts but we had to wait for about fifty kilometers to get close to Sainte-Sévère-sur-Indre and to see the right breakaway get away.
