The British Women's National Road Race Championship will be a tougher challenge in 2007 for its contestants with course director Mark Robinson announcing a new, tougher route for the event to be held in the East Riding of Yorkshire on Saturday, June 30.

The title event will be seven laps of the 13.8 kilometre East Yorkshire Road Race League course at North Newbald. The course, nestled on the western slopes of the Yorkshire Wolds, includes seven ascents of the testing Newbald Hill while the start and finish remain in Beverley.

Women riders have a chance to test the championship route before the big day with the Hull Thursday Road Club race to complete six laps of the circuit on Sunday, May 20.
