[1.1] Grand Prix Cycliste la Marseillaise
« on: January 10, 2018, 21:46 »

The start of the Grand Prix Cycliste la Marseillaise which will open the 2018 season of the French Cyclist Cup will be on Sunday January 28 on the forecourt of the Departmental Council of Bouches-du-Rhone in Marseille.

No major change for this edition of the race however the legendary Marseilles test still promises some nice surprises.

The route this year is similar to that of 2017, once again it is 145 kilometers long and retains its main difficulties: Espigouliers, Petit Galibier and for the third consecutive year, the route des Crêtes, which overlooks La Ciotat and Cassis, and which will precede Gineste, the ultimate "bump" before the spectacular dive to Marseille.

Romain Bardet will be starting his 2018 campaign in this race, he was originally going to be starting in Italy a couple of weeks later at Trofeo Laigueglia but feeling in good shape wanted to start a bit earlier, he will be joined by Tony Gallopin in his first race for AG2R.
