Wet and Windy Day at Tour de Bretagne

29. April 2016, Tréffléan (FRA) — Development Team

Strong winds and heavy rain plagued Tour de Bretagne Stage Five, causing the peloton to split heading into the second half of the 192.7km stage from Plestin-les-Grèves to Tréffléan

The peloton was back together for the first of three 10.7km circuits around the town but multiple attacks caused short gaps to form heading into the final sprint for the line, which was won by Boris Vallée (Fortuneo Vital Convept).

Fabian Lienhard remains in fourth place on the General Classification, 13 seconds behind race leader Adrien Costa (USA Cycling U23 Men).

Reaction from inside the team car

Klaas Lodewyck, Sport Director: “It was a long, tough day and I am really proud of all the guys. They showed grit and determination and really worked hard to keep with the main bunch. We haven’t lost anytime on the GC and the team are still really motivated and I know they will continue to work hard in order to move up.”
