Kirsten Wild wins women’s Prudential RideLondon

by CyclingTips

Offering the biggest prize purse of the world, containing a whopping 100,000 euro in total, with 25,000 euro for the winner and money for the team classification and Continental Tyres sprint classification, the Prudential RideLondon Classique once again attracted a star studded field, even if the event is held only days before the start of the Olympics.

Even Kirsten Wild (Team Hitec), who’s going to Rio in form and decided to sit out last week’s La Course by le TDF, lined up in London today. With a mass sprint imminent, she didn’t want to pass the chance of winning a record amount of prize money.

This was the correct decision as she won the London race with ease. Wild didn’t show her face until the final 500 meters and didn’t let anyone pass her in the sprint to the line.
