For the first edition of the Brittany Classic Ouest-France, a new name for the Grand Prix de Plouay, the organizers wanted to mark their spirits. "We wanted to find a symbolic place, whose landscapes are not the ones we usually see in Brittany," said Jean-Yves Tranvaux, the chairman of the organizing committee. 

For this second edition, the course of the Brittany Classic Ouest-France, which will take place on August 27, will pass by Inguiniel, Guéméné-sur-Scorff, Cléguerec, the coast of Mur-de-Bretagne that the runners will have to climb twice.

This observation, but also the pressure more or less friendly of the International Cycling Union (UCI), therefore pushed the organizers to break with the historical format.  After having affected a loop by St-Martin-des-Prés, Merleac, Loudéac, Rohan and Pontivy. The return on Plouay will be done by Laniscat, Plélauff, Méllionec, Ploërdut, Le Croisty, Berné then the coast of Marta before entering the circuit. In total, the online portion of Brittany Classic Ouest-France will stretch for 227.8 km plus a circuit of 13.9 km or 241.7 km in total. For men, in addition to a more selective race - at least it is the wish of the organizers - the new formula will also offer more varied landscapes, which will make it more telegenic.  

The Classic Bretagne Bretagne-France, which is one of five French events on the World Tour calendar (with Paris-Nice, Paris-Roubaix, Tour de France, and the Dauphiné criterium), will feature a set of twenty-five teams . In addition to the eighteen formations of the World Tour, the organizers decided to invite seven other teams: Cofidis, Direct Energie, Fortunéo - Vital Concept, Delko Marseille Provence (France), Wanty - Gobert Group (Belgium), Bardiani and CCC Sprandi (Poland). 

The tray will be up for grabs, with talented and fantastic defending world champion Peter Sagan (Tinkoff), who will be the headliner with the latest Belgian Olympic champion Greg Van Avermaet (BMC). 

The teams of sprinteurs will also come with serious arguments. Alexander Kristoff (Katusha), John Degenkolb (Giant-Alpecin) and Frenchman Bryan Coquard (Direct Energie), Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis) and Arnaud Démare (FDJ) will be ready to fight in the final hectometers if the decision is not made before. 

This edition of Brittany Classic will also be the last professional race of Pierrick Fedrigo, 37, winner in Plouay in 2008, second in 2009, but most of all champion of France in 2005, winner of four stages of the Tour de France 2009, 2010, 2012). Asked why he chose this race as his carrer end, he revealed that: “I am necessarily attached to this race. And most importantly, my wife, my two children and my parents will be with me on Sunday. During all these years, they were present to support me and encourage me. It was very important that my family could share this moment with me.“
