38th Tro-Bro Léon (1.Pro) - Lannilis › Lannilis (207km)

Does this race deserve a thread of its own? Of course it does!
This race takes riders over the dirt-roads of Bratagne, and while winning is certainly good on its own, being the best Breton - regardless of winning, which is of course possible - might be even better, because the best Breton gets... a piglet!


Here's a map of the route:

And last - but not least - a startlist:

I've only seen it a couple of times but loved it, along with those two races as well.

I'm surprised Wellens isn't riding, but maybe with Gilbert and Degenkolb, it would have been a case of too many leaders?

Laporte must have a great chance. Looked straight back into his spring form on Thursday
