Photo gallery: 2016 Tro-Bro Leon

SHARE
 

There are many similarities between Paris-Roubaix and Tro-Bro Leon. Both are one-day races of over 200km, both are held in France in April and both feature unusually rough terrain for road bikes. But there are significant differences between the two as well. Where Paris-Roubaix is defined by its cobblestones, Tro-Bro Leon features a bevy of narrow, gravel farm roads. And where Paris-Roubaix is one of the biggest one-day races in the world, with 114 editions now complete, Tro-Bro Leon is a small UCI 1.1 event in 'only' its 33rd year.

But interest in Tro-Bro Leon is growing. Solid crowds turned out to see Danish rider Martin Mortensen lead a One Pro Cycling 1-2 on Sunday and as photographer Kristof Ramon demonstrates below, the combination of coastline and unusual roads makes Tro-Bro Leon an undeniably picturesque race.

    Wish this would have been on, rather than that same old boring AGR in Holland, or the Netherlands, whatever the Hollanders or Dutch call it ;-)

        I believe that for speakers of the French language, the collective noun for the citizens of that country is ‘Hollandaise’.
