Having recently won a stage in the USA Pro Challenge, Elia Viviani heads into his next big test when he leads Cannondale in the GP Plouay. The Italian will focus on a sprint finish while Moreno Moser, Marco Marcato and Kristijan Koren will try to attack on the late climbs.

 

Cannondale Pro Cycling will wrap up its August race schedule at one of the most historic races in France, the Grand-Prix de Plouay Ouest-France. The event, which is part of the UCI World Tour circuit, will begin in Bretagne on Sunday, August 31. The Peloton will ride for 229 km (8 circuits at 26.9km).
 
In 2013 Elia Viviani placed seventh after a hectic finale. The Italian sprinter will once again be at the start of this French road race. He is currently in good spirits after a positive experience at the USA Pro Challenge in Colorado where he took a stage win.  In addition to Viviani, the Green Machin can count on Moreno Moser, Marco Marcato and Kristijan Koren to be among the race's main contenders to take an important result.
 
To complete the rest of the roster, Cannondale Pro Cycling will have four able athletes on-site to support its race leaders - Alan Marangoni, Fabio Sabatini, Jean-Marc Marino, and Michel Koch.
 
"I'm confident we can target a good result," said team director Gilles Pauchard. Pauchard will be in charge in France to lead the time. "The finale of the race is very unpredictable, and for us, it will be important to have more than two riders in the key moments of the race. The general form is good and I'm sure all the riders have the right motivations to stand out."
