The Celtic Series Brittany will take cyclists over the route known as Le Petit Paris-Roubaix. Like any great Classic to start your season, it is a challenging course that resembles the famed Paris Roubaix route and includes sections of dirt, cobblestones and gravel roads.
The Tro Bro Leon takes place on the day before the professionals tackle the route over famed roads, cobbles and paths of Brittany made famous by Bernard Hinault. After completing the Tro Bro Leon route you can enjoy the UCI 1.1 race the following day. The event was first run in 1984 as an amateur race, becoming a professional race since 2000.
