Watching on-bike footage of Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic road race has extra resonance for British fans, as they can spot famous riders riding past famous landmarks during Sunday’s race. Many of the roads travelled by the riders and shown in the video are favourites of riders from all over the South East.

Starting on a wide red carpet on Horse Guards Parade in the capital, the riders headed south to the hills and narrow lanes of Surrey for a climb-filled sort-out of the peloton.

Tour de France champion Chris Froome (Sky) is shown in the on-bike footage, making an appearance on British soil after his triumphant win in Paris the previous weekend.

As the race headed up and down Leith Hill and Box Hill, the action started to hot up with Welshman Geraint Thomas (Sky) making a crowd-pleasing attack on the latter.

He then attempted to time trial his way into the finish on The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace, but was caught by the bunch to set up a sprint showdown.

Belgian Classics star Tom Boonen (Etixx-QuickStep) took the victory, beating Mark Renshaw (Dimension Data) and Michael Matthews (Orica-BikeExchange).

Ben Swift (Sky), Chris Latham (Team Wiggins) and 2015 winner Jempy Drucker (BMC) were among the riders equipped with cameras during the event.

Many of the riders taking part in the race – including Brits Froome and Thomas – will now head to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil for the 2016 Olympic Games road race, which takes place on Saturday August 6.
