Great Turn out for Club 5 TT

A very good turn out in what were sunny and warm conditions saw 21 riders compete in the Leek CC 5 mile TT Championships.  Run on a tough course which starts in Rushton Spencer and see’s the riders then tackle the Hanging Gate Climb which is then followed by the slight and fast decent into Leek. It was Rob Howson of the Leek CC who was first on the night with a time of 11:21, followed by Tony Cope also of Leek CC in second with a time of 11:27 & then Alex Coates of Lyme RC in third with a time of 11:41. There was certainly some very close times throughout the field including on three occasions two riders being separated by only a single second.                                              Congratulations to Rob who is the Leek CC Club 5 Mile TT Champion and well done & great effort to all the riders who competed, and thank you for supporting the event. After the TT club members & supporters enjoyed well deserved Chip Buttys at the The White Lion Pub in Leek. A thank you from the club must go to Ruth,John,Phil & George and anybody else who helped put on the very successful event and also to local photographer Robbie Unwin for taking some fantastic photographs during the event.
