British Road Championships 2015

It’s that time of the year once again; when riders battle it out for the right to wear jerseys that will clash horribly with their team kits over the course of the following year.

 

Many countries’ national road championships take place this weekend, and in Lincolnshire in the north east of England, the prize on offer will be the British champion’s white jersey with its red and blue bands.

 

Lincolnshire was chosen as the host this year in no small part due to it being the 60th anniversary of the Lincoln Grand Prix, one of the most cherished races on the UK domestic scene. The race’s circuit will be used as part of the route for this weekend’s road race and will add a dash of history and prestige to the occasion.

 

The reigning champions are Peter Kennaugh (Team Sky) and Laura Trott (Matrix-Fitness) in the road races and Bradley Wiggins (Team Wiggins) and Emma Pooley in the time trials. While Kennaugh and Trott will be defending their titles, Wiggins and Pooely will not, the former skipping the event despite rumours to the contrary and the latter having retired.
