First run in 2002, the GP de Plouay-Bretagne is part of the women’s UCI World Cup series.  It’s 4.5 laps totaling 121km. As usual, there is little information or publicity for yet another women’s UCI race. Here is a start list. Here is the official French website. And yes, Ms. Vos won the last two editions. We regret the lack of a write up for this race but we are frustrated by the lack of basic publicity. True, there is a Grand Tour going on and it’s a Tour with a stellar line up but shouldn’t the UCI whip up some excitement for a race in their World Cup? 

Do not Delgado, the betting window closes Friday night, Pacific coast time, USA. Don’t ask why.

  7. Armitstead’s already won the World Cup overall with a race to spare but she’s not been off the podium much at all and will want to continue that. Vos is the boss and will make a point that had she done the whole WC, the title would have been hers. Or something like that.

  11. And you wonder why women’s racing struggles when the UCI diss it so. Hopefully Cookson is still finding his feet at UCI HQ and that sooner rather than later he’ll get his shit together and realize (like the commercial bike and clothing manufacturers) that the women’s market could be huge but needs support at the highest level.

    You have one of the greatest female athletes of all fucking time at the top of her game (Vos) and you (the UCI) are letting a golden motivator for your sport go to waste. Seriously, the UCI are as fucking incompetent at the US Congress and that takes some doing.

  25. @frank Have to admit, that was a total guess. Figured Lizzie might want to celebrate with a win, so stuck Vos in second. Had no clue about the other places. Couldn’t even find a link to the course profile, so didn’t know if it suited a sprinter like van der Breggen or Kirsten Wild.

    Stuck Tiffany Cromwell in 5th based purely on name recognition. Then saw her crop up on serveral other lists. Wasn’t sure if I had made a lucky guess, or if others were simply looking to see what the early entrants had picked (which I’ve never, ever done for any of the ladies VSP events…..)

    But hey, a win is a win is a win.
