The famous resort set on the Côte de Granit rose was for a long time the start harbour for the sailors of the Solitaire du Figaro race. Frequently on the course of the Ruban Granitier breton (now known as the Tour de Bretagne) and sometimes also of the Mi-août bretonne or the late Tour d’Armorique, it already welcomed in 1995 the start of the second stage of the Tour de France that finished in Vitré where Italian powerhouse Mario Cipollini claimed the bunched sprint. On that day, thanks to bonus seconds earned at the intermediate sprints, Laurent Jalabert took the Yellow Jersey from the shoulders of his French compatriot Jacky Durand.
