Tro-Bro Léon - Backaert in the offensive on unpaved roads in Brittany

Tro-Bro Léon - Backaert in the offensive on unpaved roads in Brittany

Frederik Backaert rode a strong final of the Tro-Bro Léon (1.1, 15/04). An breakaway of three riders got the free space of the peloton, but in the finals a reduced group fought for the victory on the typical Breton dirt roads, the ribinou. An attacking Frederik Backaert showed himself several times in the front of the race. In the local laps around Lavillis, our 28-year-old Flemish rider was still in contention for the victory. Victory went to Christophe Laporte, Backaert finished as 11th.
