Bretagne classic ouest-france

Trek - Segafredo between experience and youth


The american team arrives in Plouay without leaders with a team of outsiders. The collective will bring together former riders who went in Plouay at the beginning of the century and promising young guys looking for experience at the highest level. Three will discover the breton race.

The Trek - Segafredo team will not present any favorites at the start of the race. The italian-american team can be the surprise of the day if one of its riders wins. Blending experience and youth, the collective led by Steven De Jongh will be able to perform on one of the most difficult races in the world.

Of the seven riders entered, only four have already ridden the biggest race in Brittany. Together, they have fifteen participations and six retirements, the best performance being for Fumiyuki Beppu 8th in 2011. But on the first three editions of Bretagne Classic – Ouest-France, the balance sheet is harder: five participations and three retirements. The riders of the Trek - Segafredo team will also be there to learn to ride this terrible race.

To support these riders, Trek - Segafredo called Steven De Jongh, 5th at Plouay in 2007.
