2 stages in Jersey - 25 and 26 April 2010!!

April 2010 saw 22 teams from France and other countries taking part in the two Jersey stages of the Tour de Bretagne  which were actually the first two of the race held annually in Brittany.  Channel Island rider Tobyn Horton took part..

Stage 1  was on Sunday starts in Gorey, continuing around the coast around the eastern parishes of Grouville and St Martin to finish again in Gorey.

Stage 2 on Monday was held in the west of the island starting at Le Braye slip and finishing at the Watersplash.

The race first took place in France in 1967 when it was known at the Ruban Granitier Breton and was famed for its tough courses.  It is a stage race with the rider who has the overall lowest time becoming the winner.
