Keay thanks riders and fans
The Redcar S.G.Petch Bears management would like to thank the riders and fans for their excellent performance at Peterborough in the ‘Fours’ event yesterday. “Whilst the riders, all five of them, gave it everything it was great to see the large turnout of Bears supporters with their flags waving and drum banging” said promoter Kevin Keay.
“It was nip and tuck in the semi final but we managed to pip Newcastle and then we stepped it up a gear in the final and to finish second to Peterborough is something we can be proud of.
It was a great gesture for Ben Barker to give his pre-meeting medal away to a young Bears fan before the meeting but Ben is only interested in winning and it was a little disappointing that there was no official presentation on the day for a great effort by the boys.
This was through no fault of Peterborough so we will put this right on Friday with our tough encounter with Sheffield who should also be congratulated for their third place finish yesterday.”
