After last weeks cancellation forced by roadworks at Chelford, this weeks event went without a hitch. Many riders said that they were doing PB’s on a cold night with a headwind on the return leg. It was very fast to the turn though. Ben Norbury was fastest with 20:52, followed by Philip Gleave with a new PB of 21:44. Third spot was taken by Pete Kirby (Holmes Chapel Velo) in 23:13. Third placed Congleton rider was David Farrington in 23:34.
The road bike category is proving popular with fastest being Rob Howson (Leek C.C. in 24:05. Leek had nominated this event as their 10 mile championship, which Rob also won. The next two places in the road bikes went to Mick Mansell (Pro Vision R.T.) 24:17 and Jon Leigh 25:23. Gavin Brooks (25:44) and Stephen Kane 27:46 were the next best Congleton riders on road bikes.
Claire Harrison (Pro Vision R.T.), also on a road bike was quickest of the ladies in 25:48 from Lucy Rogers (26:09), Leslie Norbury (31:32) and Kerry Gleave (32:10), who was also second road bike.
Aaron Mansell was fastest junior riding a road bike in 26:12.
