Team TIBCO - Silicon Valley Bank is heading to London for the Prudential RideLondon Classique, the 16th event on the UCI Women’s World Tour calendar. The iconic circuit race, held this Saturday, July 28, in the heart of London, is one of the richest one-day races in women’s cycling and draws some of the best sprinters in the world.
Coming off her victory at Amgen Tour of California, a UCI World Tour race, and a winning streak at BC Superweek, Kendall Ryan has proven her world-class form and is looking forward to testing her sprinting prowess against some of the best in the world.
“The Prudential RideLondon Classique is one of the highlights of our racing calendar,” said Linda Jackson, Founder of Team TIBCO - Silicon Valley Bank. “Not only is this an outstanding race, but it’s also an opportunity for us to connect with some of our partners in London. We’ll be joining Silicon Valley Bank for a pre-race ride and office visit, and will have the chance to connect with TIBCO Software as well, and some of our other local supporters."
The 5.5km circuit race begins on The Mall in St. James’s Park and continues through London, up Constitution Hill, down to Birdcage Walk, passing Big Ben and through the Admiralty Arch before heading back to The Mall.
Live coverage of the Prudential RideLondon Classique will be available with the NBC Sports Gold “Cycling Pass” on Saturday, July 28. You can also follow the race on the event’s Facebook page, on Twitter and using #RideLondon and #UCIWWT.
