London 2013?

It has been announced that, as part of the Olympic Legacy, London will host an annual one-day professional road race. Although certain conditions have yet to be met to guarantee the plan,† British Cycling’s Jonny Clay has told BBC Sport he believed it would ‘definitely’ go ahead, adding, ‘I’d be surprised if in a few years it isn’t one of the world’s biggest cycling races.’ All things being equal the first running is proposed for August 2013, putting it well beyond the end of the UCI Classics season (Milan-San Remo, March through Liege-Bastogne-Liege at the end of April). It is believed that the event will involve a 100mile course broadly based on the London Olympic Road Race and, just as with the London Marathon, will see both professionals and amateurs competing together.
