SERRL Bethersden Cat 1/2/3 14th June

Ian O’Hara was the sole Sydenham representative in this 60 mile race on the Bethersden circuit. A furious pace of over 27mph meant that many attempts to get away from the bunch failed. On the final lap Ian managed to chip off the front with Andrew Dolan (Team Toachim). The two built a lead of about 40 seconds over the next few miles and just managed to hold off the fast moving bunch by a handful of seconds. Ian led out the sprint and managed to hold off Dolan to bag his first win of 2009.
