Andy Betts (Felt-Colbornes RT) took victory in the fifth round of the South East Road Race League Series at Cyclopark in Gravesend on Sunday.

The 36-year-old elite category rider from Surbiton, who also won the second round of the series back in November, took the win ahead of 22-year-old Josh Lawless (Aprire Bicycles) who was also on the podium in the East London Velo event on Saturday where he was third at the Redbridge circuit in Essex.

Betts, who was 44th in the national rankings in 2012, won the London Dynamo Summer Road Race in July and was second in the Bec CC Road Race in May.

In the supporting race for third and fourth category riders, Hockley-based 23-year-old Lloyd Chapman (Glendene CC) took the win ahead of Dulwich Paragon CC rival Matt Hammond.
