Created by Simon Smythe at 2017-08-09 12:55:32

Dan Sullivan was fastest in the last event of the evening time trial series.

On an unseasonably cold and dark evening Sullivan clocked 28.50, seven seconds faster than Adrian Blacker and 25 seconds ahead of Jon Masters and Duncan Murdoch, who rode an impromptu two-up.

Jackie Sara-aho finished in 33.27 for the maximum 10 points, while Jennie Murdoch was forced to stop several times with chain problems but still crossed the line for the eight points.

Jon Masters and Jackie Sara-aho are the overall winners – congratulations to them.

This year's event was run in-conjunction with Pace Line and to add interest to the proceedings there was a team competition. A cool evening with a slight headwind greeted the 22 riders from the Paragon, Pace Line plus guests.

Simon Warren (2m 47s) won the Club Hill Climb for the Les Black Cup beating Andy Taylor (2m 48s) by 1 second.

The team race was a closely fought affair which unfortunately the Paragon lost by 28 seconds.

Paragon beat Dorking CC at Newdigate

Created by Simon Smythe at 2017-06-22 21:08:29

On Tuesday night a strong Norwood Paragon squad beat Dorking CC in the first of the interclub time trials this year.

Dorking's Dan Cole beat the Paragon's James Stuart (pictured crossing the line) to the overall win with his 17.14 to Stuart's 17.21, but the rest of the Paragon's top six all clocked 18-minute rides whereas Dorking's last counter completed the 7.4-mile Newdigate circuit in 20.51. That handed Norwood Paragon the overall victory by a fairly convincing margin of four minutes 37 seconds.

It was a warm but not super-fast evening, with some riders complaining that it had been "a bit blowy round the back" – the top-gear Partridge Lane section – possibly impeding the progress of Stuart, on his road bike, more than it did the fastest Dorking man Cole on his TT rig.

Twenty riders in all competed and all decamped to the Six Bells afterwards.

Thanks to timekeepers Keith Butler and Dave Adams.

The next evening TT is the interclub against the Addiscombe CC on July 4 on the Bletchingley circuit.
