This event is the French Qualifier for the Granfondo World Championships. All riders from all Nations can qualify in other nations events.
The benefit of this is that this event is on the same course as the World Championship in August. This almost never happens in professional sport that riders get to practise the course in a real race situation before a big event. This would be a missed opportunity not to ride this.
The organsiers have confirmed that the course is the same as for the World Championships. See below for the course links.
Long Course - 147km (Men's World Championships)
Short Course - 95km (Womens World Championships)
