Canyon-SRAM has confirmed the two first names of riders set to start at the OVO Tour of Britain. Alice and Hannah Barnes will be at the start line in Framlingham, Suffolk, on Wednesday, the 13th of June.

Hannah Barnes will be back in the race to try to improve from the third spot she got at the 2017 edition, in which she was also the best British rider. "I'm really excited for the OVO Energy Women's Tour," she said. "We get to have our family and friends out along the route supporting us, which doesn't happen that often throughout the season.

The sisters will be riding on home soil at the second stage, considering that they come from Towcester, just a few kilometres north of the day's route. "The OVO Energy Women's Tour is a really well-organised event and the crowds are always amazing," commented Alice. "I can't wait for this year's race!"

Canyon-SRAM will unveil the complete line-up for the race in the upcoming days.
