Cholet-Pays de Loire (1.1), France

Winners, podium, distance, average speed

Cholet-Pays de Loire is a single-day race held in Cholet in the Maine-et-Loire department. It is currently (2014) paired with the Classic Loire-Atlantique, the two races being held on a weekend late in March.

The race has had several names:

  • 1978–1987: Grand Prix de Mauléon-Moulins
  • 1988–1989: Grand Prix de Cholet-Mauléon-Moulins
  • 1990–2007: Grand Prix de Cholet – Pays de Loire
  • 2008 - present: Grand Prix Cholet – Pays de Loire

With three consecutive victories (1997, 98, 99) Jaan Kirsipuu is the race's winningest rider.

GP Cholet-Pays de Loire was upgraded by the UCI to 1.1 in 2005 and is the third race of the Coup de France.

The 2017 edition was cancelled because of a conflict between the organizer and the mayor of Cholet.
