Have your say

With sunshine and lighter winds than normal for April, riders made good use of conditions on the King’s Lynn ‘25’ course between Fincham and Mundford posting fast times across the board.

The team event was won in a dead heat between Lynn pairing Steven Neill/Ben Stancombe and mixed pairing of Alex Lubbock (API Metrow) and Mark Farrow (Pedal Revolution) all posting 56.57.

Of the Wisbech Wheelers contingent John Talbot and Stuart Emmett were quickest in 1.00.54 and next in, beating the rest of the local teams, were lady vet Becky Murley and 69 year old Roger Sewell (Hounslow and Dist CC) with 1.02.18.

Roger, the week before in the Salesengine ‘10’ at Cambridge, posted an excellent 23.40. Also worth a mention are 65 year olds Paul Sims and Phil Howe who slogged round ‘old school’ on their road bikes in 1.07.50.
