Tro Bro Leon cycling race

The  Australian online magazine has published some amazing pictures of the Tro-Bro Léon road race (it almost looks like cyclocross) in the region of Léon North of Brest in the Finistère of Brittany. The race takes place in April every year since 1984. Cycling is very popular in Brittany and has great participation in its events. Note that five time Tour de France winner Bernard Hinault was from Brittany.

A Canadian won the race for the first time in 2012 (Ryan Roth).
If you want to check it out live next year, we have a house in Douarnenez which is only 1 hour’s drive away that is available for weekly rentals. (Contact me if you are interested)
