Louisa and Andy Cooper’s record breaking season continued on Saturday (2nd Sept) when they smashed the BJW Mixed Tandem Club 10 record, recording 18:28 on the fast V718 in Yorkshire.
The previous record, 20:21 has stood since 2003. In addition this time is the 3rd fastest mixed tandem ever recorded.
After the event Louisa said, “Our goal was to do a 19 but we completely surpassed that! If felt very fast and our speed did not drop much below 30mph on the way out which was a headwind so we knew we were onto a good one. Only 2 years ago this would have been good enough to match the competition record, it’s been pushed out to 17.51 since but I think we could go quicker…”
