Busy weekend ahead for the Bears!
Redcar Agilia Bears face a busy weekend of action, as they head to Glasgow on Friday night, Berwick on Saturday night before welcoming Eastbourne to the Media Prima Arena on Sunday afternoon (2pm start).
The Bears will go into the meeting on a good run of form, and will be boosted by being able to include the current British Champion in their lineup! Charles Wright has been in superb form for the Bears this year and will be keen to pick up where he left off on Monday night. Bears promoter Jitendra Duffill admits he is incredibly proud of his captain:
“ I have to admit to getting a little excited and carried away on Monday after witnessing our very own Charles Wright become British Champion. WOW! It’s absolutely amazing to have a Bear become British Champion and nobody could deserve it more. He is one of the most dedicated, determined and hard working riders you are likely to meet and he has rightly reaped the rewards for that. Although it’s not something that I personally or the club have achieved, it still feels like a victory for all of us and I’m incredibly proud of our captain. “
It is a tough couple of away meeting for the Bears, facing top of the table Glasgow and than an unbeaten at home Berwick side. The Bears ran Glasgow close in the KO Cup a few weeks ago, and the Tigers have strengthened up this week with the signing of Bears asset Mikkel B Andersen. Andersen, who spent last season as a Bear, will lineup against his former club for his first meeting for the Tigers. They will be lead by a powerful spearhead of Craig Cook and Rasmus Jensen, although Paul Starke is likely to be missing after being injured in the British Final on Monday.
Berwick have had a strong home league campaign, with a strong team throughout. Ex-Bears Aaron Summers and Kevin Doolan lead the side, with a strong reserve pairing of Coty Garcia and Leon Flint. Bears will be at full strength for all three meetings over the weekend, and Jade Mudgway is expecting a tough meeting in the home clash with Eastbourne:
“The Eagles will be another tough meeting with riders who like the Redcar track, most notably Richard Lawson. He has definitely shown that he knows his way around the Media Prima Arena, albeit when the track wasn’t as pristine as it is now.”
With Erik Riss finally making his home debut, and the British Champion coming back to his home track it promises to be an exciting meeting on Sunday afternoon. Don’t forget, its a 2pm start and all 16 and under go free with a paying adult!
