The 2017 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic will become Great Britain’s first ever men’s UCI WorldTour race. In its fifth year, the men's race has been awarded WorldTour status by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), putting it in the top tier of road races. The women's race previously won top-tier status in 2016. More than 100,000 riders participate in seven different events over the weekend of July 28-30 as part of the Prudential RideLondon event. The event, first staged in 2013, boasts the world's richest one-day races, with equal prize money of 100,000 euros (£88,100) for men and women.

Wales' Thomas came second in last year's race having launched a solo bid for victory 50km out before getting caught in the final 5km. He added: "It will be super-competitive and super-fast and I think it's going to be a really exciting race." Four cyclists have died in the past three Ride London events, including two in 2016.

On the final day, Sunday July 30 this year, 25,000 riders will take on the challenge of the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 and another 5,000 riders will participate in the shorter mass participation challenge, the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46.

The RideLondon-Surrey Classic, which will take place on July 30, is one of ten new events added to the UCI WorldTour calendar for the next three years, in addition to the existing 27 races.

Also joining the UCI WorldTour calendar are one-day race such as the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race in Australia, Omloop Het Nieuwsblad on the Flandrian cobbles and Strade Bianche on the white gravel roads of Tuscany.

The Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic rolls out from the spectacular setting of Horse Guards Parade in St James’s Park as the pro teams race through London and out into the beautiful Surrey countryside and the famous climbs of Leith Hill and Box Hill . They then head back to the centre of the capital and the iconic finish on The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.

Mick Bennett, race director of the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic, said: “We are extremely proud that the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey Classic has been awarded UCI WorldTour status in just five years and is now one of the top tier of global races. It is a testament to the hard work done by everyone in the London & Surrey Cycling Partnership. UCI WorldTour status means the best teams and the best riders in the world will be taking part and I’m confident we will have a thrilling race that really will live up to its Classic name.”

The race begins at Horse Guards Parade in St James' Park before the teams head into the Surrey countryside to climb Leith Hill and Box Hill. The cyclists then head back to the centre of the capital and finish on The Mall. The Ride London-Surrey Classic is a legacy event from the London 2012 Olympics, and covers a distance of 187km. This year it will feature just two circuits of Ranmore Common as opposed to the three in previous years.
