The race: Here's the Facebook post from winner Arne Marit's Sport Vlaanderen-Baloise team.

Great victory by Arne Marit. At the front we had Kenneth Van Rooy in a head group that was caught at 15 km from finish. Thimo Willems was still in the attack at 1.5 km from finish and was caught at the start of the sprint And then Arne nicely finished by going through in the smallest hole in the sprint.

And third-place Elia Viviani's Cofidis team post this short note:

After exemplary work from the whole team on this puncher's route, it was a sprint of 50 racers who concluded this Morbihan GP. Elia Viviani finished 3th! 2rd overall in the French Cup at 15 points behind the leader. Tomorrow he will start from the Boucles de l'Aune.
