Colombia will leave the mountains to line up against the sprinters in the RideLondon Classic which takes place tomorrow. The team will bring its fast finishers Edwin Avila and Leonardo Duque to the English capital.

 

Team Colombia is one of 25  teams (including 8 Pro Tour teams) that will be competing in the 2014 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic on Sunday August 10th. The six-rider team (Juan Pablo Valencia, Edward Diaz, Edwin Avila, Duber Quintero, Juan Esteban Arango, Leonardo Duque, led by Sports Director Valerio Tebaldi)  will tackle the 200-km route starting from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park at 13:00 (local time), that includes multiple circuits in the Surrey Hills and additional sections of the 2012 Olympic Road Race Route, such as the climb of Staple Lane.  Bradley Wiggins and Philippe Gilbert are the top guns of the British one-day race.
 
Following the Tour de France and Commonwealth Games, interest in cycling has never been higher in UK, and the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic is another chance for fans to get close to the world’s top teams. Held for the first time in 2013, Prudential RideLondon immediately set new records as it became the largest inaugural mass-participation event in the world with 66,000+ participants and raised more than £7 million for charity, making it the largest charity cycling event in the UK.. The race will be covered live on BBC1 and shown internationally in more than 160 countries worldwide.
 
“The importance of cycling in UK raised impressively during the last few days as confirmed by the outstanding Grand Depart of recent Tour de France," Valerio Tebaldi said. "We do expect a glamorous, exciting and crowded race in London, that is one more reason to give our best”.
 
On Monday, August 11th, the squad will move from London to France in view of two stage races in a row,  Tour de l’Ain (from 12th to 16th)  and Tour of Limousin (from 19th to 22nd of August). At Tour de l’Ain, Team Colombia will be in the action with the same team as in England, with the sole exception of Jonathan Paredes replacing Duber Quintero.
