• American pips Lotta Lepisto to win richest prize in women’s cycling
• Great Britain’s Katie Archibald pockets €1,000 for intermediate sprint win
Coryn Rivera, the American Team Sunweb rider, left it late to slingshot her way to victory off the wheel of her Finnish rival Lotta Lepisto and win the 55km RideLondon Classique. With a total prize fund of €100,000 (£89,000), one-quarter of which went to the winner, it was the richest prize in the history of women’s cycling.
On a filthy day in the capital, the 24-year-old from California was the only rider to get a proper lead-out on The Mall, before surfing the final metres on the wheel of Lepisto, who she inched past to win in a time of 1hr 29min 08sec. Germany’s Lisa Brennauer finished third.
