Emma Pooley gave her Cervélo TestTeam another national title, winning the British title ahead of her teammate Lizzie Armitstead.
The race was reduced to just 48km, half of the planned distance, after a huge crash on the first descent forced organisers to stop the race for over an hour. Several riders were taken to hospital for treatment.
When the race restarted, Pooley went back on the attack on the tough climb on each lap. Defending champion Nicole Cooke came across to Pooley but she then refused to work and waited for her teammates to come back across.
Pooley made one final attack on the last lap and this time Cooke did not get across to her. Pooley went on to win alone, with Armitstead finishing second and so taking the Under 23 women's national title.
