The 31-year-old Lotto Belisol Ladies rider – a member of the VC Norwich club – stopped the clock in a time of 30min 18sec, which was 39 seconds faster than runner-up Katie Archibald and 51 seconds faster than third-placed Dame Sarah Storey.

The result sees Pooley reclaim the title she previously won in 2009 and 2010.

Defending champion Joanna Rowsell had to be content with sixth place, while her Wiggle-Honda team-mate Laura Trott claimed fifth place.

Lizzie Armitstead, who was second last year, had been due to race but did not take part.
