The 2018 Grand Prix de Plouay Lorient Agglo Trophee brings the Women's WorldTour back to one-day racing for the 21st round.
In the 2017 edition, Elizabeth Deignan (Boels-Dolmans) out-sprinted Pauline Ferrand-Prevot (Canyon SRAM) to win the GP de Plouay. Sarah Roy of Orica-Scott led the peloton home behind the two-rider move to take third place.
Deignan will not be lining up to defend her title as she is taking a season off while expecting her first baby.
The women race four large circuits and one shorter circuit for a total of 125km. The race includes short and punchy climbs each lap and could either come down to a bunch sprint or a breakaway.
