Bec CC Hill Climb – Dan Does The Double!

-

Not many riders throughout the History of the 52 years of the Bec CC Hill Climb event get to wear the mantle of ‘Doing the Double’ by winning both the Catford CC Hill & the Bec C C Hill Climbs.

Dan Fleeman, Blue Sky Cycles, who until today was a ‘Hill Climb Virgin’, in his first attempt at this discipline, not only won both events, but also broke the 12 year old Bec C C Hill Record of 1.44.4 set in 1995 by Gary Dodd, Kingston Phoenix RC with an incredible 1.43.02. We understand he was very close to taking the Catford record as well.

– Reported by Garry Beckett –

Bec CC Hill Climb
Dan took a healthy sum home after winning the BEC CC Hill Climb.

Not only that, but Dan and his clubmates also took the team award, which allowed them to collectively walk away from the Bec event with a cool :£2,000.00 between them.

2nd Place Bill Bell, Gemini BC, after dead heating last year with Gary Dodd in 1.49.1, managed to improve to a 1.48.61 another incredible ride, and Robert Gough, Johns Bikes RT, who last year placed 5th in the Bec event, came in 3rd with the only other sub 1.50 ride of the day, and recorded a 1.49.92.

All fantastic achievements, as are the times of each & every comptitor who takes part.

I and my Bec C C Clubmates, would like to thank all riders, spectators, the commentator, the timekeepers, mums, dads, and everyone who helps run & support this event. A very big thank you especially toTrish Bloxham at Tandridge council, who once again granted the event the privilege of an Official Closed Road. Without you all, this event could not take place. We hope you will come back and join us next year.
