First day of Bourne CiCLE Festival ends with Emily Nelson crowned winner of the women's race
A dominant Emily Nelson was crowned the winner of the women's race at the end of the first day of Bourne CiCLE Festival.
Crowds lined the route, including the start/finish line in West Street, Bourne, and villages including Corby Glen and Grimsthorpe. A vintage racing car celebrating Bourne’s British Racing Motors heritage led off the women's race, which got underway at 2.45pm.
Emily Nelson, who took the crown in June's Rutland-Melton CiCLE Classic, finished as the winner after the 114km race with Josie Knight second and Jess Finney third, from a start line of 41 competitors.
