The race was another tough test of the riders' climbing and tactical awareness, as well as the race performance of their Handsling A1R0evo road bikes on rough terrain. 


Lincoln GP was the second round of the Women's National Road Series. It covered eight laps of an eight mile circuit that took them up the infamous cobbled Michaelgate climb with a maximum gradient of 20%.

The women’s field numbered around 140 riders and featured the top UK teams, all competing for the winner’s Cobblestone Trophy and a share of the £2,400 prize fund.

Here's Sammie's take on how the race panned out: "It was quite calm at the start. A few attacks, but nothing really went. I tried to attack a few times after the decent and finally broke thanks to the support of teammates. Had another teammate join me and three riders from other teams. We all work really well to stay away. The gap closed to 20 seconds. But we managed to escape the pelotons view again. We could have played it better at the end in hindsight, but happy to achieve a podium."
