Golden girl Laura Trott today confirmed she will go for glory in an event being staged as part of a festival of cycling in London and Surrey this summer.

Double Olympic gold medallist Trott heads the field for the first Prudential RideLondon Grand Prix on Saturday 3 August. She will be joined by fellow Games stars Dani King and Joanna Rowsell.

The cycling festival also sees the Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100 and Classic routes go through Surrey the following day.

Trott said: “It’s the perfect way to celebrate one year on from the Olympic Games in an amazing weekend of cycling in London and Surrey. I can’t wait to be part of it. Bring it on!”

Surrey Leader David Hodge said: “Both Box Hill and Big Ben will show off the very best of Britain when Surrey’s picture perfect countryside contrasts with London’s famous cityscape.”

Pictures, videos and maps of the events are available on Surrey News.
