Ulrich guests for Bears
With Charles Wright riding for Somerset this week and therefore unavailable the S.G.Petch Bears have brought in former Redcar rider Ulrich Østergaard to replace him against the Glasgow Tigers on Thursday.
“Ulrich rode well for us last time we called on him and although he took a knock at Berwick on Saturday he has kindly accepted the booking to help out his former club . With Jason Garrity and Tobias Busch still not 100% it was felt we needed a good guest as cover rather than risk using the rider replacement facility against a very strong Tigers outfit.”
“We will need to be firing on all cylinders if we are to win this one and are looking for a very vocal support from our loyal Bears fans to motivate the lads as I’m sure the Tigers will be bringing a good number of fans as they expect to continue their good run of form ” said promoter Kevin Keay.
