Crowds lining streets in Lincoln for British Cycling National Road Championships http://t.co/AqfPNsqJY6
It is likely to be the biggest sporting event ever held in Lincolnshire.
Over four days the British Cycling National Road Championships are taking place in the county.
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.
Today, though, it's been Cadwell Park near Louth that's been in the limelight for hosting time trials phases for men and women.
Fiona Dwyer reports:
More than 30,000 people are expected in Lincoln over the next few days to watch the British Cycling National road Race Championships.
Elite cyclists including Dame Sarah Storey will be competing at Cadwell Park across the weekend.

Cyclist Lizzie Armitstead has tweeted to allay fears she had broken her leg following a horror smash just seconds after crossing the finish line of the Women's Tour in Suffolk.
The 26-year-old took to Twitter to confirm that she had not broken any bones and to thank hospital staff.
She will, however, not be taking any further part in the race, as she recuperates ahead of the National Cycling Championships later in the month:
I remember winning with the help of my team mates and then not much else, but I am ok, nothing broken just very sore, thank you for all your
kind messages and to the NHS staff who took care of me so well. I won't start tomorrow in the hope of recovering properly for the Nationals.
Cyclist Laura Trott says she hopes Lizzie Armitstead's injury which saw here airlifted to hospital following a crash on the first day of the Women's Tour is not too serious.
26-year-old Armitstead, from Otley, was raising her arms to celebrate winning the first stage of the race when she collided with someone inside the barriers:
Commonwealth champion Lizzie Armitstead has been airlifted to hospital after crashing in the Women's Tour. The 26-year-old, who's from Otley, was raising her arms to celebrate winning the first stage of the race when she collided with someone inside the barriers. It is thought she has broken her leg.
A representative from her team Boels Dolmas collected her winner's jersey on the podium on her behalf.
A new photography exhibition highlighting the life and achievements of cyclist Brian Robinson has been unveiled today in Skipton.
Brian was a trailblazer for the sport in this country, and was the first Briton to win a stage of the Tour de France, in 1958:
British cycling legend Brian Robinson has received £15,000 compensation after a car knocked him off his bike in West Yorkshire.
Robinson was left with a fractured collarbone and ribs, a punctured lung and a deep cut to his arm when he was in collision with the car during a bike ride with friends last year.
But the 84-year-old, who was the first Briton to win a Tour de France stage and still rides 80 miles a week, was back in the saddle just six weeks after the accident.
The collision happened on July 16 last year, less than a fortnight after the veteran road racer was one of the guests of honour when the Tour de France visited his home county of Yorkshire.
Robinson, who won his first Tour stage in 1958, was cycling with friends in Thornhill when the car pulled out in front of him, knocking him to the ground.
Law firm Leigh Day confirmed that Robinson had received a £15,000 settlement for the costs of his bike and his injuries.
Andrew Bradley, head of the cycling team at Leigh Day, said: "Cycling is Brian's life and we are extremely pleased to have played a role in getting him back on his bike. It has also been an honour to have helped a legend of the cycling world in his legal claim."
Robinson, from Mirfield, West Yorkshire, said: "I would have preferred that it had not happened but I have been pleasantly surprised by how this incident has been handled through my British Cycling membership.
"I have had a great medical once-over and I am obviously pleased with the compensation which has enabled me to get back on my bike as quickly as possible."
