2024 Bretagne Ladies Tour: Teams Announced

Grace Brown Stage 6 Bretagne Ladies Tour 2023

The 2024 edition of the Bretagne Ladies Tour promises to be another exciting race, with the race set to take place from May 22nd to May 24th. Presented by the Team Yann TBFO association, headed by Loïc Déniel, the event has established itself as one of France’s premier stage races for women, alongside the Tour de France Femmes, the Tour de Normandie, and the Tour International de l’Ardèche. The race had to be shortened this year as local areas were unable to commit to it with the Olympic torch passing through the region around the time of the race dates.

Spanning three days in May, the tour will traverse three of the four Breton departments, offering a challenging and diverse terrain for the competitors. The race kicks off with an 18.9-kilometre individual time trial in Grandchamp, setting the stage for an intense battle against the clock. This is followed by two demanding road stages, with Plouigneau to Ploujean covering 138.2 kilometres and Hénon to Plouaret spanning 135.6 kilometres.

Ahead of the race, the teams will be welcomed and presented on May 21st in Grandchamp. The peloton for 2024 will consist of 120 riders, divided into 20 teams of 6 riders each, reflecting a high level of competition. Notably, the race received over fifty applications for the limited 20 team slots, underscoring its reputation as a sought-after event in the international cycling calendar.

Among the teams confirmed for the race are prominent World Tour outfits such as FDJ-SUEZ and Fenix-Deceuninck, as well as Continental UCI teams including Arkea-B&B Hotels and Cofidis. The diverse lineup also features national teams and selections from various regions, ensuring a truly global representation on the roads of Brittany.

Despite the condensed format, organisers are committed to delivering a spectacular event, complete with a bustling expo village, road safety demonstrations, and merchandise stalls. As anticipation builds for the race, speculation abounds over who will emerge victorious and claim the coveted title, with Australian rider Grace Brown of FDJ-SUEZ securing victory in the 2023 edition.

With all the ingredients in place for a thrilling showcase of international women’s cycling, the 2024 Bretagne Ladies Tour promises to captivate audiences and inspire fans worldwide.
