D’hoore: “I’m looking forward to a fast and flat race” in Prudential RideLondon

Wiggle High5 Pro Cycling will be led by the sprinting power of Jolien D’hoore and Giorgia Bronzini in the Prudential RideLondon Classique, in the centre of the British capital, on Saturday afternoon. Former two-time road World Champion Bronzini won the 2014 edition of the Women’s WorldTour event, and comes to the race after two third place finishes in the Giro Rosa. Belgian Champion D’hoore won a Giro Rosa stage shortly after having reclaimed her classic black, yellow and red national jersey.

“I’m looking forward to a fast and flat race especially after my last race I did, the Giro Rosa,” D’hoore smiled. “I’m excited to get back in the mix.

The RideLondon Classique route is based on a circuit of St James’s Park, in front of Buckingham Palace, with the addition of out and back legs along Strand and Constitution Hill. The criterium-style race is almost certain to finish in a sprint on the Mall, one of the most prestigious and iconic roads in London, with the top teams all expected to bring their fastest riders.

“We will have a strong team with previous winner Giorgia Bronzini,” D’hoore continued. “We have many options and a lot of experience will back our team this weekend.

“I have some good memories of London,” she added, referring to her victory in the final stage of this year’s Ovo Energy Women’s Tour, as well as her experiences at the 2012 Olympic Games. “I can’t wait to race and test my legs against some of the best sprinters in the world.”

Alongside D’hoore and Bronzini will be the finishing speed and power of former double track World Champion Nettie Edmondson. The Australian has also been finishing fast this season, with a victory in the Pajot Hills Classic in March, and will be an invaluable teammate to the two sprinters, but will be able to step up if either should falter.

The Wiggle High5 Pro Cycling team will also include the Scandinavian duo of Sweden’s Emilia Fahlin and Denmark’s Julie Leth. Fahlin’s return from the illness that kept her out of her National Championships and the Giro Rosa saw her finish fourth in the recent BeNe Ladies Tour, while Leth will be an integral part of the black and orange sprint train which showed itself to be so successful in the Tour of Chongming Island back in May.

The final member of the team will be Wiggle High5 Pro Cycling’s youngest rider Grace Garner. The 20-year-old was also a part of the Chongming Island sprint train, and will be again in London; as a junior in 2014, Garner finished in eighth place behind the victorious Bronzini.
