Men’s national road race rankings

The headline in the men’s rankings is the leader James McKay (Cycling Sheffield) has extended his lead after finishing second at the Trofeo Terrington. Saint Piran’s Alex Richardson, remains 2nd despite not having raced since June, but he is now 75 points behind McKay.

Zeb Kyffin (Saint Piran) and Jenson Young (ROKiT-SRCT) are also non-movers in 3rd and 4th, while Adam Lewis (Saint Piran) jumps to 5th from 15th thanks to third place at the Trofeo Terrington. Beyond this there was no real change, just a few shuffles here and there, the most notable being Ollie Hurdle (StolenGoat RT), who nudged up one spot to 8th thanks to top 20 placings at the Andrews Trophy and the Trofeo Terrington.

Lewis’ podium at the Trofeo Terrington helped to extend Saint Piran’s surely insurmountable lead in the team rankings. Non-scoring ROKiT-SRCT remains in 2nd team but the teams behind have closed the gap, with 3rd-placedEmbark Spirit BSS just 75 points behind now. Cycling Sheffield and Kalas Motip RT continue to round out the top five.

There are no men’s national road races this weekend. The Clive Tilley Memorial stage race (18-20 Aug, Nat B) and the Ryedale Grasscrete Grand Prix (20 Aug, Nat A) are the next national races on the calendar.

Women’s national road race rankings

With most of the riders at the top not racing at the Trofeo Terrington at the weekend, there was little change in the women’s national road race rankings.

The main beneficiary was Robyn Clay (Pro-Noctis – Heidi Kjeldsen – 200 Degrees Coffee). The top under-23 in the rankings finished 3rd at the Trofeo Terrington, enough to move her up to 6th from 9th. Team Boompods’ Ellen McDermott leapt from 17th to 12th after her 2nd place in the race, while her teammate Jayati Hine was also upwardly mobile, rising 3 places to 16th thanks to 13th at the Trofeo Terrington.

Lucy Lee (DAS-Handsling), Ruth Shier (Hutchinson-Brother UK) and Tamsin Miller (Hutchinson-Brother UK) remain the top three.

The top two in the team rankings, Hutchinson-Brother UK and DAS – Handsling Bikes, are also unchanged but Clay’s 3rd has enabled Pro-Noctis – Heidi Kjeldsen – 200 Degrees Coffee to narrow the gap to DAS-Handsling, now 174 points behind.

The Bath Cycling Club Road Race (Nat B) this weekend contains a strong field, including national road race rankings leader Lee, and 3rd-placed Miller.

How it works

The rankings take results from National A and National B road races in the UK in 2023. Note the emphasis on road racing; results from circuit races and criteriums don’t count. And neither do points from Regional or UCI road races. The focus is deliberately narrow; we want to understand who has been performing in national-level road races in the UK across the season. And keeping it focused makes it easier for us to manage and update here at British Conti HQ. 

Like any rankings system, this isn’t perfect. We aren’t pretending it will be a completely objective measure of road racing performance or ability. But we do hope it injects a bit of fun and helps create a bit of interest in national-level road racing this season, particularly at National B level.

The scoring system is very similar to the one used by British Cycling, with riders in the top 20 of races qualifying for points, with points also being awarded to stage winners.
