The Prudential RideLondon Classique took place on Saturday with the peloton navigating itself through one of the world's most iconic centres. The route was a 5.5km circuit in central London, passing sites that included The Mall in St James’s Park, Constitution Hill and Big Ben. Though rain fell from start to finish, it didn't dampen the spirits of the peloton as the race was a fast one. The eventual result was a bunch sprint with Lotta Lepistö netting second place, yet another WorldTour podium for the Finnish national champion.
