Triathlete, Mat McClure, was quickest in the Tuesday evening Wisbech race, but chasing hard on their tandem were father and daughter team Mike and Eve McInerney.

Both skating specialists, the veteran and junior lady partnership had no trouble switching to bigger wheels and came in second on the night, followed by 50+ vet Andrew Ward in third.

On Saturday in the Anglia Velo promotion, evergreen 70-year-old Roger Sewell put in a remarkable 10-mile time of 22.41 – the fastest Wisbech rider – and on Sunday in the EDCA 50 mile event near Attleborough Becky Murley recorded an excellent 1.56.04 for the distance.

However, her performance was overshadowed by Polish professional, Marcin Biablocki, who road races in this country and has taken to the domestic time trialling scene with relish, holding multiple national course and competition records.

His latest victory was in an incredible 1hr, 30 mins and 31sec which requires an average speed of 33 mph on a course which has very slow turn, which reduces the average considerably.
