Congratulations to BJW Club Secretary Louisa Cooper who continues her magnificent record breaking 2017 form into 2018.
Yesterday (22nd April 2018) Louisa broke the BJW Ladies 25M Club Record with a 00:57:27 at the Ogmore Valley Wheelers Open on the R25/3H in South Wales.
In Louisa’s own words:
“Really pleased to take the 25 club record, I thought this would be the toughest one as Sarah Pascoe’s time of 57.45 set in 1996 was an incredible time and the reason it’s taken 22 years to break. A heavy downpour of rain whilst warming up meant that the roads were wet when I set off, I took it really easy on all the roundabouts not wanting to take any risks and without thinking I’d be on for the club record. I was lucky with the wind conditions but fell apart a bit with 5 miles to go, just the thought of breaking this record got me to the line.”
Good luck to Andy and Louisa Cooper who in just under 2 weeks time who will be taking their tandem to the same course in Wales, hoping for some fast conditions and perhaps another club record?
