On Wednesday, the Wheelers’ Green Machine team were out for the last event in the TLI Handicap Road Racing League, held at Withern, near Alford.

And what a night it turned out to be.

Tim Kingswood was the first man over the line to take the night’s win and also first place in Group Two.

Chris Clayton was third in Group One while Sam Cowan was third in Group Two.

Marshall rode in the scratch group and hung in.

This must rank as one of the best nights for the club.

On Sunday, Marshall took an outstanding fourth overall at the LRRA 25 event with a time of 57 mins 37 secs in very blustery conditions.

On the same day, Alan Wheeler completed the Cambridge Duathlon (40 km bike, 10 km run) with a time of 1 hr 58.51 mins.

And to top it all, the Go-Ride event for youngsters set a new record attendance on Saturday.

All children aged from four-15 are invited to the Saturday morning rides - and introduction to the sport - at Peter Paine Sports Centre, running from 10.30am-11.30am every week.
