Tim Lynch (London Dynamo) turned the tables over his rivals and went one better than last weekend to clinch victory in the South Eastern RC 10, while Jennifer George (Memorial-Santos) won the women’s event again.

Lynch, aged 24, had to settle for second in the Addiscombe CC 10 last weekend on the same course finishing two second behind Ryan Christensen ( who posted a 20-10.

However, Lynch has ridden himself into form and on this occasion he was the only rider to dip under 20 minutes on the G10/42 and clocked an average speed of over 30 miles per hour on his way to winning in a time of 19-55.

Last season Lynch won the Epsom 10 and has submitted his entry for the National 10 at the end of the month.

The G10/42 course was threatened by roadworks earlier in the week with contingency plans put in place by the organiser.

However, riders were able to compete on the originally planned out and back course which started south of Dorking before traveling into a slight wind on the A24 before riders returned.

Paul Burton (Paceline RT) finished fourth in last weekend’s Addiscombe CC 10 but went 23 seconds faster on this occasion to take second in 20-02.

Despite equalling his winning time of 20-10 from last weekend Christensen had to settle for a joint third place with Nicholas Fennell (Thanet RC).

Quickest veteran was Joel Stewart (Team Ohten Aveas) who finished fifth in 20-21.

Juvenile rider Mattie Dodd (Pearson Works) clocked an impressive 21-06 for 13th overall and beat fastest junior Harry Ives (trainSharp Development Team) who set 21-27.

Meanwhile in the women’s race George, who also won the Addiscombe 10, in a time of 22-35 won again despite going slightly slower this time clocking 22-51.

After finishing second in the Chronos RT last weekend junior rider Eva Callinan matched that result with a time of 23-34 while veteran Charlotte Roberge (Dulwich Paragon CC) completed the podium positions in 24-16.
