Otley's Lizzie Armitstead has won the Women's British Cycling Championship for a third time.

Lizzie Armitstead will return to competition following her crash last week in the Women's Tour of Britain. More than thirty thousand people are expected to turn out in Lincoln on Sunday for the competition's finale.
