Bretagne classic ouest-france

Delko - Marseille Provence back to Plouay


Since its accession to the ProContinentale level, in 2016, the Delko - Marseille Provence team has been invited each year by the Plouay Festival Committee to compete in the Bretagne Classic - Ouest-France. The Provençal team has also known all the editions of the new bretonWorldTour’s classic and will live its fourth participation on Sunday, September 1st.

Unmistakable in the breakaways of Bretagne Classic - Ouest-France, men of Delko - Marseille Provence never disappoint when it comes to blasting the race. Since 2016, the Provencal squad have always participated in the breakaway of the day with RomainCombaud in 2016, Delio Fernandez in 2017 and Mauro Finetto in 2018.

Once again, it’s in this register that they will be expected. The Marseillais, however, should count on a nice extra card in their game with the Lithuanian Ramunas Navardauskas who has already ranked 3rd in the Plouaysian event in 2015.

In the Marseille team, we should also find the rider of Saint-Brieuc, Fabien Schmidt. As one of the best French amateurs in the last five years, Fabien Schmidt knows Brittany in all its aspects.
