Re: 2020 Smaller Race Results and Discussion

A sweet little French 1.1 classic for you tomorrow. It is another contender for "misnamed race of the year" as Paris-Camembert actually neither starts nor finishes nor passes anywhere near Paris! It does pass through Camembert at least, but from the complete opposite direction, as the race starts close to the coast, east of Le Havre. If  you want to ignore this geographical chaos, perhaps the local specialty, Calvados, in ample quantities and some of that cheese too can help......

I present to you, the race profile, full of nice little hills:

The startlist contains a lot of very interesting riders and teams that didn't go to Le Tour:

I mean, of course, I want to see #unox Jonas Iversberg (the U-23 Euro champion from Ploay) or Markus Hoelgaard crush everyone...
but there are a few others....

#ag2r Alexis Gougeard
#riwal Andreas Kron
#gazprom Sergei Chernetsky
#arkea Romain Hardy
#nippo Benjamin Girmay
#wanty Fabien Doubey

and in case it comes down to a sprint (I really doubt it, there's insanely many hills on the parcours and it is a longish race too): the old #arkea Nacer Bouhanni vs the young #riwal Arvid de Kleijn ?

If you want every little detail, fill your cup, sit back and relax:
