Lizzie Armitstead (Boels-Dolmans) secured her second British road title when she soloed to victory in Glasgow Green on Sunday 23rd June. The Yorkshire girl delivered her third podium spot in three years with an aggressive ride on a tough Kermesse style course of 14.2 km around the historic city.

Amy Roberts (Wiggle Honda) and Emma Trott had established small lead on the fourth lap when Armitstead used the climb on Montrose Street to put in a blistering attack and only King and Trott could hold onto her wheel.
