Bretagne Classic Ouest–France 2022

The 2022 Bretagne Classic Ouest-France, often known as the Bretagne Classic, is a one-day cycling race that will be held in the Brittany region of northwest France on August 28, 2022. It will be the 86th edition of the Bretagne Classic Ouest-France, and the 26th event on the 2022 UCI World Tour.

Grand Prix de Plouay was the first name of the competition. From 1989 until 2015, it was known as GP Ouest-France. It was a part of the inaugural UCI ProTour in 2005 and the UCI World Tour, which succeeded it, in 2011. It has been known as the Bretagne Classic Ouest-France since 2016.

Over the years, supporting events have expanded and now take place as part of a four-day festival at Brittany's final weekend of summer. These events include BMX races, track racing, and a mass participation ride.

The Route

In the centre of French cycling, the event starts and finishes in the small village of Plouay. The track includes eight gruelling 27 km laps and one 14 km lap with Brittany as a backdrop. The route, which demands peaks and tricky descents, is renowned for its high rate of attrition. The race often covered a total distance of about 247 kilometres.

The race passes over the Côte du Lézot, a one-kilometre climb with an average gradient of 6%, nearly soon after it proceeds. The circuit's halfway point, the Chapelle Sainte-Anne des Bois is reached after a gradual six-kilometre elevation. The race moves on to the Côte de Ty-Marrec, which has a maximum grade of 10%, following a level segment.

The final 14 km of the race provides options for distance sprinters or assaults on the final ascent of the Côte de Ty-Marrec. A small group of cyclists may occasionally be able to keep apart, but they are often caught by the sprinters and their teams as they approach the finish line.

Competing Teams

The teams often compete in the race made up of all nineteen UCI WorldTeams and five UCI ProTeams. In essence, teams from all over the world take part in the race. When riders push off, it really seems like a gang of assaults are moving ahead while making loud noises. However, the top competitors and competing teams are shown below:
