By Pete Woodhouse


Arthur Buckler had a smashing warm-up while Wisbech Speed Skaters re-visited Tatem Park in Enfield for the final race event before the British Championships held later this month.

Eleven skaters competed in the summer sunshine and put on a strong display after training hard this summer.

Siblings Leah and Taylor Barker finished in consistent second places in all three of their race events to take overall second in Categories 3 and 4 respectively.

In Category 2 Lucy McInerney fought hard to take two wins and a third place gaining an overall first. Warren Eve, skating in Category 1, took two third places to finish overall third after a very strong performance in the 5,000m elimination race, hot on the heels of Mike McInerney who gained first overall in Cat 1.

In age categories, all minis and pupils took part in a new ‘Last Man Standing’ race which saw 9-year-old Arthur Buckler smash the competition with an effortless first place.

After some deliberation, Youths Flynn McGurk and James Eve were permitted to join the Juniors, Seniors and Masters in their ‘Last Man Standing’ race. Mike McInerney eased to victory and took the top spot with McGurk putting in an impressive performance to gain third place.

The team said farewell to Mike afterwards as he travels to Barcelona to compete in the prestigious World Roller Games next week. The team are now looking forward to the British Outdoor Championships on July 20/21 in London.
