Before CCC Sprandi Polkowice takes on Tour de Pologne, they will compete in another World Tour event, one-day Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic (1.UWT, July 29th).
This race was established as a Olympic road race test event in 2011, but later on turned into one of the most prestigious parts of UCI calendar. This year’s edition is 187km long. The course is peppered with some hills (Staple Lane, Leith Hill, Ranmore, Box Hill) but it’s the sprinters who at the end of the day should be in the spotlight, since final 50km are mostly flat. As it was in the past, the start and finish venue will be located on of the most famous London’s roads, The Mall.
Three fast CCC Sprandi Polkowice riders – Paweł Franczak, Jonas Koch, Frantisek Sisr – will line out at the start. They will be joined by climbers, Michal Schlegel, Amaro Antunes, Paweł Cieślik and versatile Jan Tratnik, who are coming off of high altitude training camp and want to put their form to the test.
The race will be broadcast live on Eurosport Player from 16:00 (Polish time).
