    The Classic Loire Atlantique and Cholet-Pays de Loire 2016 race routes on Google MapsAfter Paris-Nice last week and in the same weekend as Milan-Sanremo this weekend will also, as usual, see two French one day races take place: the Classic Loire Atlantique on Saturday and Cholet-Pays de Loire on Sunday, respectively the 2nd and 3rd race of the Coupe de France PMU calendar after the Grand Prix La Marseillaise.


    In this article you'll find all the details about these two races: the Classic Loire Atlantique, organised around La Haye-Fouassière, at about fifteen kilometers south-east of Nantes, and Cholet-Pays de Loire which turns around Cholet.

    This weekend, velowire.com will be present on both of these races and you'll thus be able to find more details, photos and the result on this website this weekend!


    The race routes of these two races are almost identical to the ones from last year for these same races (the race route of Cholet-Pays de Loire is just a little bit different). No real surprises in this article though but a handy reminder of the precise race route.

    Concerning the Classic Loire Atlantique there are no changes: as usual, the race will take place with 11 laps on a 16.8 kilometer long circuit. Like last year, the kilometer 0 will be in Saint-Fiacre, at the "La Métairie" sign.

    With start and finish on the Boulevard Bernard Verlynde in La Haye-Fouassière, the race will go through the villages of Maisdon-sur-Sèvre, Château-Thébaud, Saint-Fiacre-sur-Maine and Vertou over a total distance of 182.8 kilometers.

    The race will start at 12.25PM for the fictive start (12.30PM at kilometer 0) and should finish around 5.05PM. Click here to see the time- and route schedule.

    The double former winner, Alexis Gougeard (AG2R La Mondiale), won't be there so Saturday at the end of the afternoon we'll know who will follow up on him!

    The race route of the third race of the Coupe de France PMU 2016 calendar has changed a bit compared to last year, and shows a distance of 210 km this year (compared to 208 in 2015, 206 in 2013 and 2014 and 199 in 2012) and the climbs which are part of the Challenge des 10 bosses (the 10 hills challengeà are also a bit different (the Côte de la Croix Baron will only be climbed once instead of twice and the Côte d'Andrezé got added instead). The most important hills will still be hill number 1, the Côte du Cimetière, and the forelast one (number 9), the Côte de la Tessoualle. The feeding zone will be at Saint-Florent-le-Vieil.
