This weekend sees the return of the Ride London classic with ONE Pro Cycling joining international teams such Team Sky, Cannondale, MTN amongst others. The event is held for both sportive riders and elite pros with the sportive setting off early in the morning and the elite race following on behind.
The OPC team has a strong line up and is led by team Captain Yanto Barker along with fast men Chris Opie and Jon Mould. The race starts in the Olympic Park Stratford, makes its way through the centre of London and down into Surrey via Hampton Court. Takes in a couple of laps of the Ranmore common loop and then heads back for a quick run in along the embankment to finish outside Buckingham Palace on the Mall.
This week also sees the news that OPC have also had their invite to ride the Tour of Britain along with other international teams including Team Sky and Team Wiggins.
We at Le Col are really looking forward to seeing everyone out on the rout to support the team and cheer on their favourite riders.
The professionals take on the route at 13:30 from Horse Guards Parade and start racing at kilometre 0, Earls Court!
