    GP Marseillaise - dramatic finish last year - won last year by La Pomme Marseille rider Jules Justin in a bunch sprint, just overhauling lone attacker Sander Armée of Topsport (now Lotto) on the line.

    Ag2r will be looking to chalk up their first win of the season and have quite a strong team including 2012 winner Dumoulin.
    Other PT teams:
    Lotto - de Clerq, Vanendert, Monfort, Gallopin
    Giant - Barguil, Degenkolb
    FDJ - Vichot, Federigo, Pinot
    Europcar - Jerome, Gautier, Bernadeau

    Some ProConti
    IAM - Chavanel, Pineau
    CCC Polstat - Rebellin and Samoilau
    Caja Rural - Madrazo
    Wanty - Leukemans, the Kreders, and de Vreese.
    Bretagne have the Feillu brothers and Vachon.

    I see Remy di Gregorio is riding for La Pomme Marseille this year.
    An Post riding too. Have Aussie Glen O'Shea.

    As Inrng mentioned, it's amazing that this race doesn't have a website or it's own page despite be sponsored by a newspaper.

    Had a quick search for live coverage - anyone found any ?
  • ^That Dumoulin link is pretty cool!

    Cant find any links to this race or the Italian one.

  • Kenneth Vanbilsen of Topsport wins. Sounds like an exciting race - MIkael Cherel was out solo in the last few km with a small chasing group behind but the bunch reeled everyone back in the last km.

  • Bretagne Seche fans - no Bretagne Seche riders in the top 15! Brice Feillu was in an earlier break and was out in front solo at one point.

  • S Ponzi wins GP Etruschi. Rides for fluro as do 3 others in the top ten...including Rabbotini of that compelling Giro stage win ahead of Rodriguez.

    Much better highlights (+15 minutes) than GP Marseilles, here:

    Scinto's boys all over this race like fluorescent vomit down a dark shirt.
    Low profile clearly not crossed their minds.

    I have a soft spot for Topsport Vlaanderen, so it's good to see them get an early-season win.
