Bretagne classic ouest-france

With Niki Terpstra

08/29/2019

A specialist in Plouay, the Vendée team has already competed twenty times in the biggest professional race race in Brittany. On the Bretagne Classic - Ouest-France, she will be one of the teams expected to play the leading roles with her dutch leader Niki Terpstra.

The team of Jean-René Bernaudeau knows Plouay well since it has already played twenty times the race of the Comité des Fêtes. This team also posted three victories in his list with Didier Rous in 2004, Thomas Voeckler in 2007 and Pierrick Fédrigo in 2008. Now with the name of Total Direct Energie, she will be there to afford a fourth victory.

Recruited to win the spring classics, Niki Terpstra saw her season spoiled by a bad fall in the Tour of Flanders. The Dutch will find in Brittany an ideal classic to take revenge. When we saw Oliver Naesen win twice, we can believe that Niki Terpstra also has all the qualities to win the great breton classic. The leader of Total Direct Energie will count on a good team to support him.

The Vendée team has deep ties with Plouay. Between 1978 and 1988, his boss, Jean-René Bernaudeau himself raced eight times the Grand Prix Plouay and also the Championship of France in 1984 when he took the 10th place.

Lilian Calmejane and Niki Terpstra as leaders

Total Direct Energie presented its first list of riders in Plouay under the direction of sports director Benoit Genauzeau.

131. Thomas Boudat (Fra, 25). The sprinter, 37th of the Bretagne Classic in 2017, will live his third experience on this race. He will be one of the men expected on the team with his leaders Lilian Calmejane and Niki Terpstra.

132. Mathieu Burgaudeau (Fra, 20). The youngest member of the team continues his apprenticeship, he will be there to discover the Bretagne Classic. Former laureate of Manche-Atlantique, he appreciates the hilly course of Brittany.
 
133. Lilian Calmejane (Fra, 26). 20th in 2017, 24th in 2018, the Frenchman likes the Bretagne Classic. He will be one of the protected riders on his team and one of the outsiders of the day.

134. Perrig Quemeneur (Fra, 35). It will be a highlight for the Breton who will live his last race on the Bretagne Classic. He will be there to do for the last time his great teammate job.

135. Romain Sicard (Fra, 31). The Basque will compete for the fifth time the Plouay’s race. He will be there to help his leaders or take the breakaway.

136. Paul Ourselin (Fra, 25). The winner of the Grand Prix Plouay amateur 2016 was escaped last year, he will again want to be in the morning break. Good teammate, he will also be a good support for his leaders.

137. Niki Terpstra (Ned, 35). The Dutch, winner of Paris-Roubaix 2014 and the Tour of Flanders 2018 will discover the Bretagne Classic, a race that should please him. So far, he has only come twice to Plouay without having obtained significant results. Unhappy last spring, the leader of the Vendée team is revenge. He will be in Brittany to win.

The announced substitute is Fabien Grellier (Fra).
