Wisbech Cycling Club members took part in a range of events and races last week

Wisbech cyclers have once again showed off their talents throughout their recent exploits.

TT rider and triathlete Mat McClure demonstrated his immense powers of recovery by taking part in a series of races.

Having rode in an iron-man half triathlon near Stafford two Sundays ago, he went on to cycle 25 miles in just over 54 minutes last Wednesday.

That stint was as part of the CC Breckland event.

McClure was joined by Neil Empson, who crossed the line in a very respectable 58:43.

On Saturday, Neil Empson was in action in the Chronos CC 10-mile event at Hardwick, near Cambridge.

His speed was on full display as he stormed to a time of 22:30.

On the same day, 60+ veteran Tony Bye took part in the 'Ride Harder 10' event near Attleborough.

Battling through the strong headwind section of the race, he struggled for significant periods.

However, he managed to fly home after reaching the backwind segment and shot across the finish line in a time of 42:41.

Elsewhere, prolific TT racer and Wisbech supervet Roger Sewell was in action.

Riding on the old A1 near Tempsford on Sunday, Sewell was racing in the Veralum CC Open '25'.

He rounded the course in just over an hour (1:01:50), meaning he was left disappointed at being unable to beat the 25mph average he so often seeks.

Sewell joked that his age was to blame for the disappointment.

More likely, however, is that Sewell naturally struggled in a strong breeze.

He has proven he can still keep up with younger racers and will hope to keep that up.
