Newton Wins Lincoln GP in Style
© Cheryl King
Chris Newton danced away on the final climb of the Lincoln Grand Prix to win the prestigious event for the second time in his career. A race that is always hotly contested by riders from home and abroad, the Lincoln GP is arguably the number one race on the British calendar.
Ten laps of Lincoln's historic streets including cobbled climbs and a technical course make for a demanding and entertaining three hours plus of racing. The Rapha Condor Sharp boys put on a superb display in front of record crowds, Kristian House stringing the field out early to show the British National Road Race champ and his team mates meant business. Olympic medallist Newton, looking to have found fine form at just the right time, used his tactical prowess to stay at the front and attack when it mattered. Speaking after his win he said: "I love riding my bike as much as ever", and it shows. Russell Downing, one of three Team Sky riders racing stated: "Rapha rode unbelievable today. They showed just what a professional outfit they are." Chapeau.
