Cannondale-Drapac aims for victory at RideLondon

The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic is on the WorldTour calendar for the first time and to celebrate the occasion, Cannondale-Drapac will send a solid team with the intention of taking the victory.

"The race is pretty open, which means that there are several possibilities to win," said sport director Ken Vanmarcke. "Halfway we have some nice climbs, where the peloton can split, and a select group can go to the final.

"Depending on how many sprint teams there are, there is also a chance to get everything together and sprint for the victory. We have a good mix of riders for both situations. It’s a pretty new race, but already has a big name on the race-calendar. It’s very cool to race in a famous city like London."

This will be the third time for Will Clarke in the British race. "I am really looking forward to this race," commented the rider. "It can be quite open, which I like. It can suit aggressive racing. Being my third participation, I know the roads a bit now. I have family In the UK too so it will be nice to race in front of them as well.

"We definitely have a strong team for this race. We have some of the best classics guys in the peloton on our team with Sep, Sebastian and Dylan. I think we will look to race aggressively. We have big engines in the team who can race hard all day and a course like this really suits us."
