Johnson Health Tech GP Series Champion Hannah Barnes and the Orica-AIS team will line up against some of the world’s best female riders at Prudential RideLondon Grand Prix in central London on Saturday 3 August.

The women’s Grand Prix criterium is part of the Mayor of London’s two-day world-class cycling festival, Prudential RideLondon, which takes place over the weekend of 3 and 4 August.

Barnes will be hoping to build on last month’s victories in the Johnson Health Tech GP Series and the IG London Nocturne but the MG Maxifuel rider will face tough opposition from a talented international field. Among them are the Honda Wiggle sextet including the in-form double Olympic gold medallist Laura Trott, fellow team pursuit gold medallists Joanna Rowsell and Dani King and 2013 world champion Elinor Barker in the Prudential RideLondon Grand Prix in central London on the evening of Saturday 3 August.

Also confirmed is the Orica-AIS team including veteran Dutch international Loes Gunnewijk, South Korea’s national road race champion Sunguen Gu and the Australian duo of former junior world individual pursuit champion Jessie McLean and 2012 Olympian Amanda Spratt.

A field of 90+ riders is expected to contest the Prudential RideLondon criterium on a 1.3-mile course around St James’s Park finishing on The Mall. The event will be televised by the BBC.
