This weekend almost 100 of the world’s best women riders will be tackling the criterium on a fast, flat 1.3-mile loop around St James’s Park as part of the RideLondon Cycle Show. The weekend also provides an opportunity to meet and greet the Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling team (or Wigglettes as they like to be known.) According to WiggleHonda “Our athletes will be signing autographs before they compete in the Grand Prix event Saturday evening. Don’t miss this opportunity to come and show the team your support!” indeed.
Apart from the ever popular Laura Trott and Dani King you can also queue up for Amy Roberts, Elinor Barker, Rochelle Gilmore, Emily Collins and Anna Bianca Schnitzmeier. Failing that you can follow their twitterage with the links above.
Trott may be among the favourites for the race but has been insisting that she’s really a team player. ‘When I was at the Olympic Games I only got to ride in the Velodrome and you don’t get to see all the landmarks, so it’s going to be amazing,’ said the 21-year-old, ‘I want to target the Grand Prix as there’s going to be so many people there watching. The team element is really important, as they are there to help out as much as they can and I think it will go down to me or Dani King, as obviously when it comes to a sprint we’re the fastest riders.’
And a last word from Trott:
