Tro-Bro Léon (English: Tour of Léon) is a professional cycle road race held in Finistère, Brittany. The event was first run in 1984 as an amateur race, becoming a professional race since 2000. The race was established in 2005 as a 1.1 event on the UCI Europe Tour

It is often called Le Petit Paris–Roubaix or The Hell of the West due to its similarities with Paris–Roubaix, because Tro-Bro Léon includes 24 sections of dirt, cobblestones and gravel roads (making up to 29.7 km or 18.5 mi) on the rolling and windy roads of Brittany.[1]

These tracks are called Ribinoù, which is a Breton word meaning anything that is not tarmac, farm tracks, gravel roads, etc
