Northamptonshire is once again hosting a stage of the elite women's cycle race competition, the Ovo Women's Tour.

Many of the world's best race cyclists will take on the gruelling 90 miles including the hills up to Daventry.

The event starts at 1030am from Rushden Hall Park and wends down to the edge of Milton Keynes for the first time in the event's history, before turning back up towards Silverstone and onto Daventry.

Organisers say the hilly approach to Daventry will be tough, and the winner of today's stage could be the overall event's winner due to the tough conditions.
