Believe Bro Leon’s main favorites

It is not the kind of race that makes it easy to identify potential winners as there are so many obstacles. In addition to the more than 200 kilometers to be covered, without counting the fictitious ones, the chain of ribinose poses the greatest difficulty. The giro may be controversial on another front, but acclaimed riders take the trip to Finistère to claim to put Faith Bro Leon on their list.

Connor Swift for a double in Hell of the West?

In Lannilis, to the 38th Faith Bro Leon is strictly speaking not one or two names that stand out.

Initially Connor Swift which can legally be considered a credible competitor to its own heritage. A far from easy mission to win two years in a row, the last rider to achieve this feat was Samuel Dumoulin in 2003 and 2004. To prevent the Briton from Team Arkéa-Samsic from managing the double, a few Frenchmen can be ambitious . In the match with the best on the last Paris-Roubaix, finished in 6th place, Adrian Small (Intermarché – Wanty – Gobert Matériaux) will try to play the lead roles. As well as Bryan Coquard (Cofidis) and Anthony Turgis (totalEnergies), both of which are back in the competition after observing a brief pause.

On the foreign side, especially Belgian, there is no shortage of assets either. With Arnaud DeLie (Lotto Soudal), which is already returning after its fall during 4 Days of Dunkirk. Members of French formations, Piet Allegaert (Cofidis) and Stan Dewulf (AG2R Citroën Team) is also capable of excelling in such an event. To look closely therefore as a particular Jake Stewart (Groupama-FDJ) to their advantage during 4 Days of Dunkirk with an overall third place, and which therefore shows an interesting level of form.

*** Anthony Turgis, Bryan Coquard, Connor Swift
** Adrien Petit, Arnaud De Lie, Jake Stewart, Piet Allegaert, Stan Dewulf, Matis Louvel, Hugo Hofstetter
