Once again Richard Eve tops the Wisbech Wheelers leader board in the evening series with Mat Webster in second and the once unassailable Paul Ashby had to settle for third.
With Ashby’s slight loss of form and the fast improving younger riders, the series mirrors the Tour De France – much more exciting than last year. Moving the seniors up to 50 years has kept powerful riders in the mix and in the depleted vets group 70+ John Brown put 19 seconds into 65+ Pete Baldwin.
