Canyon-SRAM has announced its line-up for the upcoming ASDA Tour de Yorkshire, with Hannah Barnes aiming to improve from last year's fifth place on home soil.

The English race will consist of two stages for the first time, and the German outfit has selected riders for different kinds of terrain. Hannah Barnes, who will also be joined by her sister Alice, understands what it means to have the local crowd focus on you.

"It's a home race which adds a huge amount of excitement but with that also comes some extra pressure. I had a good race last year and this year our team is stronger so I know that we can be very aggressive in the race," she said.

"The second stage falls on my birthday and starts in Barnsley so I would like to do well there. I've pre-ridden the stage and it's very challenging! It's great that the organisers have extended the race to two days and with the live broadcast I'm sure that fans will see an exciting race."

The complete Canyon-SRAM line-up for the ASDA Tour de Yorkshire (May 3-4):
