RideLondon Classique preview: Sprinters duke it out in richest women's one-day race

After a climber and GC-heavy focus for the last few rounds of the Women's WorldTour, it is the sprinters turn again as the series heads to the UK for the RideLondon Classique. It is effectively a criterium rather than an outright road race, but it comes with the biggest one-day race prize pot in women's cycling, ensuring a field to rival any race on the calendar. A whopping 25,000 euros are on offer for the victor and their team.

Born in Ireland to a cycling family and later moved to the Isle of Man, so there was no surprise when I got into the sport. Studied sports journalism at university before going on to do a Masters in sports broadcast. After university I spent three months interning at Eurosport, where I covered the Tour de France. In 2012 I started at Procycling Magazine, before becoming the deputy editor of Procycling Week. I then joined Cyclingnews, in December 2013.
