British Semi Final preview – Friday 31st May – 7:30pm
This Friday night sees 16 of the top British Riders battling it out, as we proudly host the British Semi-Final at the Media Prima Arena (7:30pm start).
It promises to be a hugely exciting night, with the top 6 on the night going through to the British Final at Belle Vue and joining the 10 seeded riders for the chance to be British Champion! And there is plenty of home interest in the semi final, with the Bears having three representatives on the night. Charles Wright, Ben Barker and Tom Bacon will all be looking to use their home track knowledge to their advantage as they look to qualify.
They will have their work cut out though, as the lineup is packed with riders who go well around the Teesside track. Both Steve and Richie Worrall certainly know the fastest way around the MPA, and Jason Garrity and Josh Auty have both spent time as a Bear. Lewis Kerr, Paul Starke and Kyle Howarth in particular have had some superb meetings here as well so the field is wide open. There is also plenty of potential packed into the lineup, with the likes of Stefan Nielsen, Kyle Newman, Ashely Morris, Ben Morley and Zach Watjknecht who will all fancy their chances of causing an upset!
There is one late change to the lineup, as unfortunately Josh Bates has had to withdraw through injury. He will be replaced by Sheffield’s exciting youngster Drew Kemp.
It is a meeting that is not to be missed! And please note, all children under 16 will be admitted free of charge!
Paul Starke, Jason Garrity, Stefan Nielsen, Kyle Howarth, Steve Worrall, Josh Auty, Kyle Newman, Richie Worrall, Charles Wright, Ben Barker, Ashley Morris, Ben Morley, Zach Watjknecht, Tom Bacon, Drew Kemp, Lewis Kerr.
