London Classic - Race Overview

One year out from the 2012 Olympic Games, London is bringing road racing back to its picturesque and esteemed city streets for both professional men and women. The Prudential RideLondon Classic is aiming to showcase past and future Olympians over a two day festival of cycling. The women will take on London on day one, while the men hit out around London and Surrey on day two. GreenEDGE is the only team sending both a women’s squad and men’s squad for the weekend.

“London will be a good way for the guys to get into the swing of things before heading into a slew of one day races. In August we have Hamburg and Plouay, and then we go across to Canada in September for Quebec and Montreal. It’s a good distance for the guys who are thinking about getting results at those races and in the World Championships.” - Sport Director Matt White
