    Cholet-Pays de Loire 2012: its race route on Google Maps and its list of participating riders (and the bib numbers)After Paris-Nice last week, this weekend will see two one-day races in France: the Classic Loire Atlantique on Saturday and Cholet-Pays de Loire on Sunday.

    After the article about the Classic Loire Atlantique 2012, you can find in this article all details about Cholet-Pays de Loire 2012, organised around Cholet.

    This weekend, www.velowire.com will be present in both races and you'll thus be able to discover all details, photos and the results as soon as possible after the finish on this website!

    The race route of Cholet-Pays de Loire 2012 on Google Maps/Google Earth

    The race route of the third race of the Coupe de France PMU 2012 is very similar to last year's route but takes some slightly different routes at some places (for a total distance of 199 km this year) and the referenced climbs for the Challenge des 10 bosses have also been modified for some of them. The most important climbs remain climb number 1, the Côte du Cimetière, and the forelast climb (number 9), the Côte de la Tessoualle. The feeding zone will be in Saint Pierre Montlimart.

    Hereunder you'll find the time- and route schedule, the race profile and a Google Maps of the route of this race. Click on each of the images to open them.

    The list of participating riders and their numbers
