The 2023 French calendar's traditional opening race, the Grand Prix Cycliste la Marseillaise, is due to take place on Sunday, January 29

The French race in Marseille is always a bit unpredictable and is a good opportunity for younger riders to score a big result. It has historically been the domain of French riders, with past winners like Benoit Cosnefroy and Alexandre Geniez.

Last season Arkéa's Amaury Capiot got the better of Mads Pedersen in a reduced bunch sprint.

The GP Marseillaise is typically less than 150km long to give riders a gentler re-entry into racing after a long winter. But now that riders come out of the off-season with more form, the race will be 167.9 kilometres in length.

It's a lumpy parcours that starts with a neutral rollout to Allauch, heading over several long but shallow climbs - the Montée le Terme, Pas de la Couelle, Col de l'Espigoulier and Les Bastides at Roquefort-la-Bedoule - as the route heads North toward Fuveau before turning back south to the coast.
