Prudential RideLondon Classique, central London

Billed as the richest women’s one-day race in professional cycling, the new Prudential RideLondon Classique followed a 5.5km circuit around London's royal and government districts. It began on The Mall in St James’s Park and going up Constitution Hill, turning at the top to come down and on to Birdcage Walk. The route passed Big Ben before turning left on to Whitehall and right on to the Strand, turning again to come back up the Strand, through Trafalgar Square and Admiralty Arch and back on to The Mall.

The individual winner of the Classique wins 25,000 euros in prize money and the winning team is awarded 10,000 euros. The inaugural race was won by the Dutch rider Kirsten Wild in a sprint on The Mall
