It’s an unusually busy week of racing in Plouay, France, with the UEC European Championships being moved to the French town and held from August 24-28, now being held alongside the GP de Plouay-Lorient Agglomeration Trophee WNT on August 25.

The long-running French one-day race for women maintained its August position on the revised Women’s WorldTour circuit despite the cancellations and changes due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic that halted the international calendar for five months. It now forms part of a block of racing in France that will conclude with La Course by Le Tour de France on August 29.
