With just one more race in the Wisbech Wheelers Tuesday evening series and the last one not counting in the overall results, triathlete Mat McClure looks to have taken the competition overall.

He was followed in by 40+ vets, Jon Talbot and Andrew Ward, although the results are subject to confirmation. McClure has been streets ahead of the opposition but further back in the field the competition has been closer and only three seconds separated vets Adrian Whiting (40+), Carl Murley (50+) and John Bates (60+) in one race.

The 40+ vet, Becky Murley is the strongest lady by far and her unofficial battle with husband Carl is not quite such a close run thing on paper with Carl leading by eight victories to four but some of those head to head’s were won by mere seconds although with the season winding down it looks as though Carl can breathe easy until next year.
