The renowned Côte de Mûr-de-Bretagne entered the history book of the Tour as soon as 1947: at the summit, halfway through the longest ever time-trial on the Tour (139kms between Vannes and Saint-Brieuc), René Vietto had virtually lost his Yellow Jersey. It would go on the shoulders of Pierre Brambilla who would eventually be beaten by Jean Robic, winner after the final stage of that first edition after the war. Way later, Cadel Evans (2011), future winner in Paris that year, Alexis Vuillermoz (2015) and Dan Martin (2018) were the last three to triumph at the top of “l’Alpe d’Huez of Brittany”.
