Former World Madison Champion Emily Nelson of RST/Cycle Division Racing Team declared herself “shocked” after claiming victory in the CiCLE Women’s Classic in the latest rounds of the National Road Series.

Nelson of RST/Cycle Division Racing Team had set herself a target of just finishing the CiCLE Women’s Classic in Leicestershire for Round 3 of the women’s National Road Series after a puncture forced her to withdraw last year. The race distance was shortened from 105km to 70km after a delay caused by a crash at kilometre zero. Once action was under way, the renowned CiCLE Classic course did not disappoint with rain making the second off-road sector even tougher.

Nelson said: “I’m so happy! I came to this race hoping to just get through it – it’s such a prestigious race. I raced in it last year and punctured so didn’t actually finish. My whole goal was to finish so, to finish first, I’m pretty shocked”.

“I just tried to stay in the top five or top 10 and try to follow some of the riders I know are really good off road, cyclo-cross riders and mountain bikers. I was just trying to pick their wheels and follow them.”

Both pelotons now move on to Bristol next Sunday, when round 1 of the women’s National Circuit Series – the Bristol Crit – and round 4 of the men’s National Road Series – the Circuit of the Mendips – take place.
