Boston Wheelers CC’s Green Team battled through the torrential rain and swirling wind to compete strongly in the Thetford MTB Winter Series.

Undeterred by the freak storm-like weather, the Boston team put in a strong showing for round three of the competition.

Competing well on their mountain bikes, Earl Taylor was the first Wheeler home in 15th position.

Following him home were Charlie Porter in 57th and Stuart Crunkhorn in 73rd.

Reece Tomblin completed the quartet of Green Team competitors, finishing in 77th spot.

Youngster Dan Storey finished ninth in the junior section.

Taylor will swap his mountain bike for a road bike as he joins a group of Wheelers teammates for their 300-mile charity lap of Lincolnshire on March 21.

He will acompany Alan Sharpe, Simon Balsom, Asa Elkington, Earl Taylor (left), Nick Chapman, Simon Plaice, Chris Clayton, Neil Booley, Darren Smith (right), Ken Syrett, Danny Brown, Julie Ellis and Nigel Clare, as well as part-riders Kenny Doig, Rob Wright, Tim Wilkinson, Mick Huskinson and Paul Winrow to raise cash for Sport Relief.

They will attempt to cover the distance, two loops of the county, within 24 hours.
