Solihull Cycling Club hosted the fourth round of the British Women's Team Cup.

Winning sprint launched by Lancaster

Hosted by Solihull Cycling Club, the fourth round of the 2023 British Women's Team Cup took place on Sunday 9th July in Inkberrow, Worcester.

The National B Road Race was on an undulating 100 km parcour consisting of 5 circuits. The course profile being best suited to a rouleur or, possibly, a breakaway.

Starting off fairly sedately, the attacks quickly rolled in with multiple riders giving it a shot going off the front. This strung the bunch out causing problems for riders at the back especially at pinch points at the junctions. Frankie Hall made a small gap stick around halfway through the race but it was quickly brought it back with the wind favouring the bunch.

After sitting up for half a lap, the chases started again. Due to the nature of the rolling course, positioning was key, with a slight acceleration at the front, causing problems at the back for some riders. The speed stayed constant throughout the rest of the race with fewer riders making moves, confirming the predictions of a bunch sprint finish. As the weather turned the bunch thinned with riders abandoning and some with mechanical issues.

A small kicker just before the finish meant getting into position for the sprint key. The sprint was won by a convincing margin by Georgia Lancaster of Brother UK Orientation Marketing, marking a breakthrough win for the young rider. Second was taken by Frankie Hall of Loughborough Lightening and the battle for third was a hard fight won by Lucy Lee from Penny Colloff.

The winning team on the day was Brother UK Orientation Marketing. With two rounds remaining it is all to play for in the team standings.
