    The race course of the Classic de l'Indre and of the Grand Prix de Plouay 2011 on Google Maps / Google EarthA few days ago I presented you the different stage races which are on the UCI cycling calendar in August in France and especially the the Tour Poitou-Charentes 2011 race course on Google Maps.

    These stage races are alternated with 3 one day races including the Châteauroux Classic de l'Indre Trophée Fenioux on the Sunday after the Tour du Limousin and the Grand Prix de Plouay the next Sunday, after the Tour Poitou-Charentes. In this article you can find all details about the race course of these two races on Google Maps and with the profiles.

    The Châteauroux Classic de l'Indre Trophée Fenioux 2011 race course on Google Maps

    Anthony RavardThe Classic de l'Indre 2011 takes place on Sunday 21 August and will receive 4 UCI ProTeams (AG2R La Mondiale, Astana, Euskaltel-Euskadi and Vacansoleil-DCM Pro Cycling Team), 11 continental pro teams (Bretagne-Schuller, Cofidis, FDJ, Saur-Sojasun, Team Europcar, Landbouwkrediet, Veranda's Willems-Accent, Spidertech Powered by C10, Team Type 1-Sanofi, Colombia es Pasion-Cafe de Colombie and Caja Rural) and 4 continental teams (Roubaix-Lille Métropole, Rabobank Continental Team, Katusha Team and BigMat-Auber 93). For AG2R La Mondiale Anthony Ravard probably targets a good result in this race which works so well for him. The winner from 2008 and 2010 who ended 3rd in 2009 will most probably sprint for victory again in 2011.

    The race, which has its 8th edition since its creation in 2004, covers with its race route the whole north-eastern part of the Indre department which gives its name to the race. It will start in Châteauroux and go towards Issoudun where the Prime du Conseil General de l'Indre will be awarded and than to Reuilly with the Prime des Viticulteurs de Reuilly and Vatan for the first out of 3 Challenges Citroën in Saint-Florentin, but also in Prinçay and Poulaines. The riders will get in the feed zone between the last two, between Dun-le-Poëlier and Saint-Christophe-en-Bazelle. The riders will than get back to Vatan where the first sprint des Opticiens Mutualistes will take place before they continue south-west towards the second of these 3 sprints in Vineuil. Via Déols they'll get back to Châteauroux where they arrive on a 7.4 kilometer long circuit on which they will race 5 laps. In this circuit they'll have a new feeding zone in the Rue Ampère.

  1. The link for the Google Earth file of Grand Prix de Plouay 2011 is broken, it says 'Page non trouvée'. Can you fix it, please, if you still have the file? Thanks for the good work.
