The five lap, 60 mile Trooper Binkerhoff Memorial Race race began in earnest. The day’s first breakaway formed on lap one in fierce headwinds. CCAP's Tim Ahearn could sense the field was cautious of the wind and bridged alone to the breakaway at the end of the first lap.
Lynch and Ahearn slowly ratcheted up the pace in the last two laps until they had dismissed all of their breakaway companions.
Heading into the last lap, Ahearn knew his best chance for a win would be to try and rid himself of Lynch a few kilometers out ride alone to the finish.
His attempts were unsuccessful though and they came to the finish line head to head in a sprint with Lynch taking the win by a slim margin.
Congrats to Tim on a great early season result. We're sure there's more success from him and the CCAP team on deck this season.
