Tro-Bro Léon (1.Pro), France

Winners, placings, distance and average speed

The Tro-Bro Léon is a single-day professional bicycle race held northwest France, in the Finistère department, which is in Brittany.

Because of its challenging course with dirt, cobblestone and gravel sectors, it is called Le Petit Paris-Roubaix or The Hell of the West. Recent editions have had about 30 kilometers of unpaved road.

"Tro-Bro Léon" means "around the country of Léon" in the ancient Breton language.

Tro-Bro Léon was an amateur race from its inception in 1984 through 1998. In 1999 it was opened to professionals as a 1.5 race. In 2000 it was ranked 1.4 and in 2002, it was reclassified as 1.3 and in 2005 it was made a 1.1 race and part of the UCI Europe Tour. It is currently ranked 1.Pro and is part of the year-long Coupe de France competition.
