Hello!  The Women’s race got underway in Barnsley on another cold and wet day.  These drawings were made in real time, which I prefer – No hanging about!

The race has attracted some of the World’s best riders, including Word Champions and Olympians, reinforcing the reputation of this race.

Lizzie Banks from Sheffield made a very strong start, securing Queen of the Mountains and eventually forming a breakaway partnership with Leah Dixon.

Later, the two became six before the final push to the finish in Bedale.

The final push saw a phenomenal finish by Lorena Wiebes – she broke away so fast to cross the line. Very impressive!
