Great Britain RR Championships

Nicole Cooke takes number 8

Essex, Sunday 19 August



Nicole Cooke won her eighth British RR Championship with, what has become a signature move in the event, a solo break.

After getting away from the bunch with several others  - Rachel Heal (Webcor), Emma Pooley (Team Specialized), Helen Wyman, Lizzie Armistead, Nikki Harris (all Global RT),  and Catherine Hare (Rapha Condor), Cook waited until the final lap to jump away from the others and win with almost a minute to spare. The Global Racing Team riders did not chase Cooke's attack, so the fight for silver came down to a breakaway bunch sprint. Rachel Heal, so many times runner-up to Cooke in the past, took her fifth silver in the RR Championships, whilst Helen Wyman was third. Nikki Harris was fifth, behind Catherine Hare, but took Under 23 honours.
