The second event in the 2017 Evening TT league had 32 starters on a fine evening. There was a bit of a fright before the event got underway, in that there were mobile roadworks on the course doing pothole repairs. In the event no riders were stopped so there were some excellent times.
Jack Schofield was quickest in 21:31, from Jon White (Pro Vision) 22:19 and George Coghlan (Janus RC) 22:33. The next best Congleton riders were Phillip Gleave in 22:55 (a PB by nearly 2 minutes) and David Farrington on the comeback trail after a nasty accident last year with 23:34. The ladies race was won by Claire thompson in 28:40 from Sue Blake 29:00 and Wendy mansell (Lyme RC) in her first TT with 31:52. The junior racers were all visitors. Tobias Edwards (Huddersfield Star Wheelers came top in 23:37 from Andrew Burgess (Pro Vision) 23:56 (PB) and Matthew Braybrook (Knutsford Tri Club) 25:51.
There were 3 generations of the Mansell Family (Lyme RC) competing. As well as Wendy there was Mick 25:28, their 13 year old son Aaron 26:51 and grandfather Derek 29:28.
