Wisbech Inline Speed Skaters proved that they are a force to be reckoned with after speeding to success at their home race.
Skaters Roller Skating rink was the venue for a day of high energy and closely-fought racing as more than 80 skaters from across the country descended in Wisbech for the second time this year on Sunday February 20.
Six-year-old Arthur Buckler and seven-year-old James Garwell led at the front from the very first lap in each of their races in their respective categories and brought home a medal and trophy each.
Flynn McGurk and team coach Mike McInerney both triumphed in their categories after dicing with the front runners throughout their races making for some incredibly close racing, with Eve McInerney finishing in a very close second place.
Other team competitors were brothers Warren and James Eve, Jonathan Garwell, Oli Johnson, Nathan Steele , Dylan Taylor and Jo Tidman.
