Webster spins early Wisbech Wheelers lead
Victory by 10 seconds went to Mat Webster with a 21.23 in week three of the Tuesday evening Wisbech Wheelers TT series over Andy Bean on 21.33 making it a 2–1 lead so far.
Triathlete Mat McClure was the only other rider inside 22 mins. Becky Hamilton, also a triathlete, seems to have taken a solid hold on the lead in the ladies competition with an increase in pace this season putting her just in front of last year’s winner Lou Campion.
In the men’s 50+ group the absence of several riders so far has allowed Pete Baldwin to move up into first position but new rider, 60-year-old Tony Bye, is closing the gap.
