Alice Barnes will lead Canyon-SRAM in the Prudential RideLondon. The newly-crowned British champion will show her colours at the race of her country.

The course of the race will change this year and will take the riders through a 3.4-kilometre circuit for 20 laps. The peloton will race clockwise around St James Park, do a 180º turn in Constitution Hill and pass Buckingham Palace before a 500m long sprint to the finish in The Mall.

"I am excited to race in the national stripes at home in the UK and to come into the race with good legs," said Barnes. "As a team, we are really looking at a podium and we have some cards to play for this.

"There are a lot of things I enjoy about Prudential RideLondon. To start with, the crowds are always amazing as we are racing in central London on a Saturday and everyone really gets behind us regardless if they were there to support us or not. I have a lot of family and friends in London so I love the chance to race in front of them. The television broadcast and the prize pot. All of these things give the race great exposure and showcases our racing style."
