An amateur race between 1953 and 1974, Circuit de la Sarthe welcomed the pros from 1975 and it was immediately won by one of the biggest names in the history of the sport, Bernard Hinault. Since its inception, it has been held without interruption for more than six decades, the only years it wasn’t organised being 2020 and 2021. Now, the race is making a return on the calendar between 5-8 April, and Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl will be at the start for the first time since 2003.
