Marco Marcato won the Tour de Vendee one-day race in La Roche Sur Yon.
The Italian Vacansoleil rider edged Spain's Peio Bilbao (Euskaltel) in the bunch sprint to the line at the end of the 205km race.
AG2R's French star Maxime Bouet came third, with two more French riders - Laurent Pichon (Bretagne) and Guillaume Levarlet (Saur-Sojasun) following him in as part of a five-man lead group.
Europcar's Anthony Charteau was sixth some four seconds back with his team-mate Perrig Quemeneur a further 10 seconds behind on a day when the main peloton finished over a minute behind the winner.
