Women’s Masters Road Race Championship & (Men’s/Unisex) Priests Ford Support Race

On Sunday 7th August Lovelo Cinelli RT of BC’s Central Region hosted the National Women’s Masters Road Race Championships. A 60 mile course around the challenging Quainton/Winslow circuit saw almost 70 riders line up to try and secure victory in there age group.


The race rolled out of Quainton and shortly after it was deneutralised the pace started to see a few riders fall out the back up Pitchcott Hill. As the race worked it’s way through North Marston the race began to paceline out. Within 6 miles a strong attacks saw Michelle Lee of Team MK, Masters Crit Champion in her age the week before and Winner of her age at the Tour of Cambridgeshire, go up the road. So early on little riders saw this as a threat.

Faith Fisher however bridged across but decided that with 50 miles to go this would not be sustainable and dropped back leaving Michelle Lee to ride to reach a gap of up to 2:50 gap on the field during the race. Meanwhile a mechanical for Laura Cameron of Drops Cycling saw her team mate Jen George drop back to help pace her back on. Both rejoined the group.

The attacks within the bunch from riders such as Maryka Sennema came thick and fast occasionally catching out riders such as Melissa Brand of Ford Ecoboost who as the bunch started to split had to work hard to successfully rejoin the leading bunch. The race fractured into the lone break and leading riders with a chase group which included the potential winner of the 55-59 group and Niki Kovacs of Brixton Cycles also in this chase group working hard was one of the host riders Amy Louden of Lovelo Cinelli RT.

Working hard together was CC Luton’s Jen Lake and Elaine Maitland who were trying to fend of this chase group and regain contact with the front bunch. Locally born rider and ex-MTB pro Jenny Copnall-John was working well in the front group who were trying to reel in Michelle Lee.


Steph Clayton of Mammoth Racing Team suffered a mechanical and after retrieving a wheel from service found the rim was too wide for her brake setup too late and was forced to try to prevent any riders from catching her as she held the gap constant from the bunch.

Then on the last lap a ferocious attack saw Chanel Mason of the Army Cycling Team, Masters Crit Champion 7 days prior leave the front bunch and over the space of a few miles closed down to Michelle Lee, pausing only momentarily to regain herself she then went straight past Michelle who had nothing left to give having spent the whole race on her own. Putting a similar sized gap into Michelle barring mechanical issues Chanel had the overall race sewn up and her age group win in the bag. Michelle Lee battled to keep her gap from the main field terrified in the closing miles her advantage would get swallowed up.

Chanel crossed the line first to win her age group followed by 2nd place but age group winner Michelle Lee leaving a bunch sprint to decide 30-34 age group champion 45-49 and 50-54 champion as well as the silver and bronzes for all the ages. Jen George stormed across the line alongside Rebecca Rimmington of Team WNT who narrowly took 2nd place in the bunch sprint.
