Otley's Lizzie Armitstead has won the Women's British Cycling Championship for a third time.
The 26-year-old was involved in a horror crash during the Tour of Britain earlier this month, but recovered in time to compete today in Lincoln.
Speaking to British Eurosport, she praised the crowds for their support saying she would head to Donegal, Ireland to celebrate with her boyfriend.

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:
