Forty riders competed on a decent night, albeit with an east wind which kept the temperature down a bit and the times up a bit.
Some still went fast though. Alex Royle (Manchester Bicycle Club) recorded 20:43. We questioned whether this was a course record, but have been informed that Andy Tennant might have got under 20 minutes in the past. Ben Norbury was fastest Congleton rider with 21:19 for second place, Philip Gleave was 3rd in 22:31 and David Farrington 3rd best CCC rider in 24:25.
Lucy Rogers was best lady in 26:16. followed by Lesley Norbury, Alison Stephenson and Kerry Gleave.
Junior honours went to Aaron Mansell (Pro Visio RT) 26:26 and the new Road Bike classification went to dad Mick Mansell (Pro Vision CC) 24:53. Best CCC riders were John Leigh, 25:45, Gavin Brooks (26:38) and best lady Kerry Gleave 33:20.
