Grand-Prix de Plouay Ouest-France (now known as GP Ouest-France) is an elite cycle race held annually in late summer around a circuit based on the small Breton village of Plouay since 1931. Originally named Grand-Prix de Plouay, it has been part of the UCI ProTour since the competition's inception in 2005, and in 2009 became one of the events in which points can be won towards the UCI World Ranking. Since 1989, the race has been known as GP Ouest-France.

The winners list has been dominated by french riders (see below). The first non-french winner of the race was the dutchman Frits Pirard in 1979, second was Sean Kelly from Ireland in 1984
