Skaters Roller Skating rink was the venue last weekend for some high energy and closely fought racing as more than 80 skaters from across the country met for the second time this year.

The home team, Wisbech Inline Speed, proved that they were a force to be reckoned with.

Six-year-old Arthur Buckler and 7-year-old James Garwell led at the front from the very first lap in each of their races in their respective categories and brought home a medal and trophy each.

Flynn McGurk and team coach Mike McInerney both triumphed in their categories after dicing with the front runners throughout their races making for some incredibly close racing, with Eve McInerney finishing in a very close second place.

Other team competitors were brothers Warren and James Eve, Jonathan Garwell, Oli Johnson, Nathan Steele, Dylan Taylor and Jo Tidman.

After their impressive display Mike McInerney was full of praise for his team: “Everyone did so well today. They deserve every success after the hard training they have all done,” and he quipped that the training will be much harder from now on!

The weekend also saw the presentation of the new team skin suits, sponsored by Aboda Homes, Milos and Skaters Roller Rink, and presented by club chairman, Hugh Doggett.

The team now focus their training and attention on the British Indoor Championships in March.
