It’s the 53rd edition of the Bretagne Classic Ouest–France and the race will once more be held around the Breton village of Plouay in Western France.
The Classic was originally named the Grand-Prix de Plouay and, from 1989 to 2015, GP Ouest-France, and first mad it into the UCI World Tour in 2011. The race has been called Bretagne Classic Ouest-France since 2016.
The current champion is Oliver Naesen (Team AG2R La Mondiale), who won the title ahead of Michael Valgren (Team Dimension Data) and Tim Wellens (Team Lotto Soudal).
The 2019 race preview
The route typically covers around 250 km of racing, beginning and ending in Plouay.
Previous champions include Italian cyclist Elia Viviani (Team Deceuninck - Quick Step), who won in 2017, Alexander Kristoff (UAE-Team Emirates) in 2015 and Edvald Boasson Hagen (Team Dimension Data) in 2012. Naesen is a multiple winner having also won in 2016.
Given its World Tour status, the top teams such as Dimension Data, UAE-Team Emirates, Astana Pro Team, Team Sky, Team BMC Racing, Team Katusha-Alpecin, Team LottoNL-Jumbo and AG2R La Mondiale will be on the start line.
Naesen will be hoping to make it three titles this year, but Wellens will also be looking to take his first win here after some good early season form. Alexander Kristoff will also be a hot favourite to seize back the crown, while Boasson Hagen and last year’s runner up Michael Valgren will push the leaders hard.
Elsewhere, Michael Matthews (Team Sunweb) is a big threat - he came fourth last year, and Zdnek Stybar (Team Deceuninck - Quick Step), who came sixth in 2018, is in fine form this year having won the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and the E3 BinckBank Classic.
Former World Champion Peter Sagan (Team Bora–Hansgrohe), Michał Kwiatkowski (Team Sky) and Fabio Jakobsen (Team Deceuninck - Quick Step) will also be targeting the podium if they race.
