A Tale of Two Triangles

Last week saw two events in the Triangle TT series.

A pleasant Tuesday evening saw a return to Walshford for a 15mile event on the A168.  Guest rider Matt Chipping was fastest in 33:06, and fastest OCC rider was Jonathan Allen in 34:56.  Fastest on handicap was Steve Broadley, managing maximum points for the second event in a row.

A rather wetter and blustery Thursday didn’t put off those eager to race the full Triangle for a second (and penultimate) time this year. Jonathan Hobbs, in riding a 29:56, achieved the fastest time of the night.  Chris Yates’ 30:57 gave him the maximum points in the handicap competition.

Following these two events, Tom Broadley’s consistent progression throughout the season has brought him a commanding lead over second placed Tony Wild. With only a few events left can he be caught?

Next week sees the last loop of the full Triangle course, before a return to Walshford and earlier starts for the closing events of the season.
