This first stage of the Les Sables – Les Açores en Baie de Morlaix (197 miles at the start and finish of Les Sables d’Olonne, via Rochebonne and Les Birvideaux) promised to be tricky, the fault of a vast anticyclone planted in the middle from the Bay of Biscay. Tanguy Bouroullec (969 – Cerfrance), not only lead at the first turning mark, he went on to win the stage – very impressive! More here.
