Fierce battle

With 30 competitors the timekeeper was hard pressed to keep track of all the riders in last Tuesday’s Wisbech Wheelers evening event.

Top vet, Paul Ashby, still rules with 21.30 but the fierce competition in the seniors section pushes them ever closer to his pace and Richard Eve was next man in with 22.08. Three more riders were inside 23 mins, David Jakeman, Doug McClure and Mike MacInerney. Jonny McClure (14) seems unassailable in the juniors and mirrored last week’s time.
