German Lisa Brennauer is set to lead Wiggle High5 at the OVO Energy Women's Tour. The rider has shown a good form in the last month that she hopes to keep throughout the British race.

Brennauer has recently stepped on the highest position of the podium at the Lotto Thüringen Ladies Tour and she will try to copy this success at the British competition. "I’m feeling well, and of course it was a good time in Thüringen, so I hope I can take my good form into the OVO Tour as well," she commented.

"I still remember last year when the race went into the Peak District, and the profile looks like we’re doing something like that again."

Even though the German will be the leader of the team, Wiggle High 5 will also play other cards at the General Classification fight. "I think we’re there with a very strong team, so it’s super-exciting, and I hope we can do a very good race," Brennauer explained.

"Obviously our main sponsors are from Great Britain, so it’s a big goal for us, and a big goal for the team as well. So I hope we can do really well there."

Italian champion Elisa Longo Borghini will return to the race after finishing third in 2016. They will be joined by the French time trial champion Audrey-Cordon-Ragot, who dominated the Queen of the Mountains classification in the last edition of the race.
