Packed field for London Grand Prix

Prior to the start of the Tour of Britain on Sunday, September 7, elites will get their chance to race the London Grand Prix, which also serves as the penultimate round in the elite men's circuit race series.

Two strong eight rider line-ups from Rapha - Condor - Recycling.co.uk and Pearl Izumi - Planet X - High 5 Racing Team dominate the 80-rider strong entry list, with Graham Briggs, Simon Holt for the former and Jeroen Janssen for the latter all still in with a chance of claiming the Series crown.

Briggs and Holt lie second and third in the series, and with championship leader Dean Downing riding The Tour of Britain, it will be a chance for the two youngsters to overtake their team leader at the top of the standings

A number of other top names who will be appearing, among them is Liam Holohan, fresh from his runner up spot in the Salford Nocturne last weekend and Sport Beans' Marcin Bialoblocki, who has been in good form in the Premier Calendar this year.

Racing gets underway at 10.30 local time and will run for 55 minutes and five laps on the Westminster Circuit. The Tour of Britain will run from September 7 through September 14.
