Can Gilbert break his duck in Plouay?
The GP Ouest France - Plouay, the biggest of a three race series in the Bretagne region of France takes place on Sunday, 28th August, with a stacked field lining up for the one-day classic.
The riders will face up to 13 laps of a 19.1km circuit that takes the riders north into the surrounding towns of Kerihuel and Le Faouet before turning back toward Plouay. Three climbs and around 300 metres of altitude covered on each lap may not seem much, but the legs will really be burning as the race approaches the downhill finish at kilometre 248.
