Ever since being created in 1980, the GP Cycliste La Marseillaise has had a reputation for bringing bad luck to those who win it - according to superstition (and cyclists are a superstitious bunch), any rider who is victorious in this race will experience little success in the rest of the season. However, Bernard Hinault, who won this, the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France in 1982 might disagree.
