Bec Riders Break Team 50 Record
9th August 2009
This mornings near perfect weather saw some of the fastest rides of the year at the Anerley 50M TT on the G50/53 Course.
Keith Coffey was once again restored to his position as the Bec's fastest Tester, winning the event with a seasonal PB of 1:50:40. Shaun Kennedy who has already won three Time Trials this season, including the Horsham 10 and Bec Open 10, came third with a super fast 1:51:46. Having ridden a life time PB at the SCCU 100 two weeks ago, Keith Butler knocked almost 4 minutes off of his 50 PB coming in at 1:57:37. Tim Seddon rode his first 50M with a strong time of 2:10:53, showing his potential for the future.
Both Keith Coffey, and Keith Butler improved on their times for the Southern Counties Best All Rounder awards.
With these fast times Keith, Shaun and Keith have set a new club team record (as well as winning the event team award) beating the previous record set in 2003 by 53 seconds.

Club Captain James Hughes said of the event "
" This morning saw some fantastic rides, and shows that the Bec are the number one time trial club in the London South District. Our riders just seem to get faster and faster, and obviously age doesn’t seem to slow them down! Good to see Keith C has pulled it out of the bag this time, although i think he’s still looking to buy a new bike to ensure he keeps up with the old man Kennedy.
Sadly i couldn’t ride myself on this ‘float’ day, on account of getting off work late but if the results from these old blokes are anything to go by, i’ve got a least 20 yrs before i hit my prime!"
