European champion Marta Bastianelli spearheads Team VIRTU Cycling’s attack in 2019; the 32-year-old Italian notably took victories in the Ronde van Drenthe and Tour of Flanders rounds of the UCI Women’s WorldTour earlier on this season.

Compatriot Barbara Guarischi won the Prudential RideLondon Classique on The Mall in 2015, while Dutch rider Anouska Koster helped Marianne Vos and Dani Rowe secure podium finishes in the 2017 Women’s Tour when riding for WaowDeals Pro Cycling.
