    The Tro Bro Léon 2015 on Google Maps

    The Tro Bro Léon is some sort of a bis repetita of Paris-Roubaix. Without really comparing both races, where the second part of the Hell of the North's race route is full of cobble stones, the Tro Bro Léon - the Hell of the West - contains ribins which make this race particular.

    I already hear you say ribins, what's that? Well, ribins (pronounce it as reebeens) or ribinous are roads across the fields, either as a sans road but often containing some gravel, which are spread around the race route. No less than 23 different ribins are on the race route, of which one is ridden 3 times in the laps on the circuit around the finish city (to get to a total of 25 ribins), for a total distance of 31.9 kilometers (the longest ribin is 3.3 kilometers long).

    The start and finish will be in Lannilis, north of Brest. From there, the riders will leave the neutralised zone on the D28 where the sea enters the land close to Saint-Pabu. Via Ploudalmézeau they go to the coast line which they follow via the touristical route before they go back landinwards via Brélès and back to the sea close to Lampaul-Plouarzel. They'll then discover the different ribins:

  1. Tous ceux qui connaissent le secteur ne me démentiront sûrement pas : le vainqueur sera un très bon (mais aussi un chanceux)!
