Weather at the finish city of Plumelec at 2:00 PM, local time: 11C (52), cloudy, with the wind from the west at 23 km/hr (14 mph). There is a 12% chance of rain. There was rain at the start.

The race: Thibaut Guernalec (Arkea-B&B Hotels) did not start.

Here's the race report from third-place Arnaud De Lie's Team Lotto Dstny.

The Grand Prix du Morbihan offers a challenging course: after a 65-kilometer introduction, the riders had to tackle 5 laps of a large local circuit followed by 8 smaller laps, each including the tough Côte de Cadoudal. "It was a beautiful race, but very, very tough," says Arnaud De Lie. "I won't say I went all out on all 13 climbs of the Côte de Cadoudal, but at least 7 times."

2023 winner Arnaud De Lie before the race.

Two breakaway riders managed to stay ahead of the peloton briefly but were caught in the final uphill kilometer. Benoît Cosnefroy, who launched a long sprint, and Axel Zingle finished ahead of De Lie. "Maybe I lacked a bit of confidence, but I'm ultimately satisfied with my third place. The team worked well for me. We were racing in the front the whole time, and they were there when it mattered."

Arnaud De Lie thus secures his second podium in a week since his return to the peloton. "That gives me confidence. Last week was nice, but here, in this challenging race, you don't perform unless you're in good form. So, this is a good confirmation and gives me confidence for tomorrow's Tro Bro Leon."
