This week's report which the Express used including the tribute to Karl:
"Colin Lynch is hitting form just at the right time with the third, and final, round of the para cycling World Cup due to be held in Canada in a couple of weeks time. On Tuesday night, Lynch secured the best win of his domestic cycling career when he won the Seamons CC road race at Allostock. Breaking away with another rider from the gun, Lynch held off a quality field and outsprinted his breakaway companion. Mick O’Connor was seventh in the same event and Mark Bethell ninth in the accompanying race for under 55s.
The next night Lynch returned to time trialing and took second place in the latest round of the club 10 mile competition. Lynch recorded 23.48, just behind winner Chris Quin’s 23.23. Darren Owen took third place with 25.12. That result puts Lynch in the lead in the handicap competition, just two points ahead of Bill Renard with Fred Wardle a further seven points back. Lynch is also second in the scratch competition with a slender one point advantage over Matt Duck.
Another ride in form at the moment is Roger Wrenn who travelled to Cumbria to take part in the Veterans Time Trial Association 10 mile championship. On a warm evening Wrenn recorded 22.11 to finsh thirteenth overall and second in the 60-69 category.
Finally, the Club would like to send its condolences to the family and friends of local rider Karl Austin who was run down and killed by an HGV on Thursday evening. Karl was a stalwart of the local cycling scene and will be sadly missed."
