Two of France’s finest, Cassandre Beuagrand and Leonie Periault, have proven their Super League pedigree in the past and will be tough to defeat.
Rachel Klamer is another class act on the world stage, and has home advantage with the Netherlands cheering for one of their favourite sporting stars.
Maya Kingma, another Dutch star, and Ilaria Zane from Italy have both shown plenty of ability on Zwift as part of Super League racing during lockdown and are a force to be reckoned with in such a new format.
There is also a very special start for Quinty Schoens, the 21-year-old Dutch rookie who has produced promising results at the beginning of her pro career and is handed an incredible chance to prove herself against the very best.
