After last weekend’s Vårgårda races in Sweden, the women’s WorldTour continues in France this Saturday with the penultimate WT race of the season, the GP de Plouay-Bretagne. Held in Brittany, the race features a rolling circuit that often wears down the legs over the course of the race, providing a worthy winner on the long finishing straight into Plouay.
Leah Kirchmann leads the Team Liv-Plantur line-up at the race, with a strong support team to keep her third place overall and get her into the final ready to fight for the win.
“Plouay is always a hard course here, and every year you see a selection of top riders racing for the win,” explained Coach Hans Timmermans. “With Leah we have a rider who can be there in the mix and a podium is a realistic target for us. Besides Leah we have a strong team in support on such a hard course.”
