OVO Energy Women’s Tour Race Director Mick Bennett, Trek-Drops rider Hannah Payton and WNT ROTOR’s Hayley Simmonds take us behind the scenes at Wednesday’s national launch photoshoot on College Green, London.

The photo call, in front of the world famous Houses of Parliament, proceeded a launch event in the Strangers’ Dining Room, during which the 2018 race route and increased prize fund were announced.
