    The Classic Loire Atlantique and Cholet-Pays de Loire 2011 race routes on Google Maps/Google EarthAfter Paris-Nice, the French cycling season continues this weekend with two races in the Pays de la Loire region: the 12th edition of the Classic Loire Atlantique on Saturday and the 34th edition of Cholet-Pays de Loire on Sunday.

    In this article you'll find the race route of these two race on Google Maps/Google Earth. This weekend www.velowire.com will be present at these two races and you'll thus be able to discover all details, photos and results/classification right this weekend here on this site!

    The Classic Loire Atlantique 2011 race route

    For the first time in 2011 the Classic Loire Atlantique is a race in the 1.1 category of the Europe Tour of the UCI cycling calendar (so far it was a 1.2 race).

    Starting and finishing on the Boulevard Bernard Verlynde in La Haye-Fouassière, the race visits the municipalities of Maisdon-sur-Sèvre, Château-Thébaud, Saint-Fiacre-sur-Maine and Vertou over a 16.8 kilometers long circuit on which the riders will do 11 laps to come to a total distance of 184.8 kilometers.

    Laurent MangelLast year's winner, Laurent Mangel, will again participate for the Saur-Sojasun team. In addition to the French teams (Saur-Sojasun, AG2R La Mondiale with Cyril Dessel, Bretagne-Schuller with Renaud Dion, Cofidis, Team Europcar with Thomas Voeckler, FDJ, BigMat-Auber 93 and Roubaix-Lille Métropole), 2 UCI ProTeams will participate: Saxo Bank-Sungard and Vacansoleil-DCM Pro Cycling Team.
    The other participating teams are Caja Rural, Team Spidertech Powered by C10, Skil-Shimano, Topsport Vlaanderen-Mercator, Veranda's Willems Accent and Vélo Club La Pomme Marseille.

    The Cholet-Pays de Loire 2011 race route

    Cholet-Pays de Loire, a race which is part of the Coupe de France, will have its 34th edition around the city of Cholet.

    This race is the second of the Coupe de France PMU after the Grand Prix Cycliste la Marseillaise which was won this year by Jérémy Roy.

    As usual, the race route contains no less than 10 climbs over 197 kilometers around Cholet (one big loop and one small loop). The most important climbs are climb number 1, the Côte du Cimetière, and the forelast (number 9), the Côte de la Tessoualle. The feeding zone will be in Saint Pierre Montlimart.

    Leonardo DuqueThe same teams will participate in this race but the participating riders are not necessarily the same; the participation in Cholet-Pays de Loire is a little bit more high level than in the Classic Loire Atlantique.

    Only the Cofidis, Saxo Bank-Sungard, Vacansoleil-DCM Pro Cycling Team, Landbouwkrediet, Team Spidertech Powered by C10 and Roubaix-Lille Métropole teams will send exactly the same riders to both races. FDJ and Saur-Sojasun will send completely different teams to these two race because 6 of their 8 riders will be different.

    In the list of riders for Cofidis we discover that last year's winner, Leonardo Duque, will not participate for the French team this year.

  1. Bonjour,
    je vous conseille de venir à Cholet ce week-end car vous aurez le droit à un plateau de choix avec une course ouverte, difficle et indécise, comme les classiques belges.
    La "Primavera" des Mauges sera comblée car le soleil sera de la partie (Thomas, le soleil va attendre les coureurs..)
    de plus, gros week-end car dès le samedi 900 cyclos se proméneront sur le circuit des pros. Le dimanche course hommes COUPE DE FRANCE mais aussi femmes COUPE DE FRANCE avec de nombreuses équipes étrangères dont la vice championne du monde et la 3ème de ce même championnat.
    Course palpitante et programme alléchant sont au rendez-vous de ce week-end.
    Le tout agrémenté d'animations sur la ligne avec le PMU et le Village partenaires où des vélos sont à gagner.
    Nous vous attendons avec grand Plaisir.
    Thomas tu es le bienvenu.
    Bon week-end à toutes et à tous.

  2. Je compte sur le soleil effectivement pour être remonté après que les coureurs de Paris-Nice n'aient pas pu le rattraper !

    Le programme me semble très intéressant ... la cyclo doit être pas mal aussi, dommage que je ne puisse pas venir le samedi (je devrais pouvoir me cloner de temps en temps ;-).

  3. Merci Thomas pour ton engouement pour la Classic Loire-Atlantique et en espérant que tu nous feras de belles photos que nous pourrons mettre sur notre site internet.
    Dans l'attente de te voir samedi,
    Amicalement

  4. :-). J'aurai mon nouvel appareil photo en tout cas (quel investissement !), donc j'espère bien pouvoir m'en servir ce week-end !

    A samedi.
