Canyon-SRAM will race the OVO Energy Women's Tour with a special kit. The riders of the team will swap their entire outfit for a design based on the Rapha Women's 100.

The team will sport a special design based on the event that inspired female cyclists across the world to come together to ride 100 kilometres of the same day, which will be the 14th of September. "The Rapha Women’s 100 is a celebration of women’s cycling and the community it creates around the world," said Rapha Pro Teams Marketing Executive Lara Kazako.

"A key part of this community are the women racing at the highest level; there are no better role models in the sport than the riders of CANYON//SRAM. They have, and continue to inspire so many women to ride the Rapha Women's 100 each year, on 14th September 2019, team-mates, friends, those new to the sport and racers alike, come together to ride 100km."

Kasia Niewiadoma will be back in the race she won in 2017. "This race always gives me a lot of good feelings! There are so many people out there cheering us and supporting every rider no matter what result they get!" she commented.

"It's like racing six spring classics in a row. The stages are super hard and demanding, but then you add in this amazing organisation and road-side support, and it's just wonderful to be amongst this mix of feelings! I have no expectations on myself for the week. That keeps me calm and fresh in my mind! I would like to surprise myself, to see what happens and I want to be a helpful teammate for our sprinters."

Canyon-SRAM's roster for the OVO Energy Women's Tour (10th to 15th of June):
