Redcar v Somerset preview
Redcar Agilia Bears face another tough test this Friday evening, as they welcome the Somerset Rebels to the Media Prima Arena in Championship action (7:30pm start).
The Bears continued their good run with a hard fought win over Berwick last week, but co-promoter Jade Mudgway thinks it gave the team a reminder that you can’t take anyone for granted:
“Last week, we had a very close meeting against the Bandits. The track didn’t take the last lot of watering as it normally does, which left it very slippery and this caught us out. These things always tend to have a bigger impact on the home team, as the Bears have their set up and racing lines in their heads for their first rides. But it wasn’t time to hit the panic button just yet. We have the skill and determination to overcome these things, and that is exactly what we did. It probably did us a favour in the fact that it gave us a kick and let us know that we need to be on our a game no matter who we have visiting at the MPA.”
Somerset come to the Media Prima Arena with a very strong top four, including Nick Morris, Rory Schlein, Chris Harris and Nico Covatti – who impressed whilst guesting for Berwick last week. They will supported by Anders Rowe who impressed in the U19 Final, Nathan Stoneman and Luke Harris. The Bears will be at full strength for the meeting. Mudgway is looking forward to a tough but exciting meeting:
“The Rebels will be a very tough team to beat, and it’s guaranteed to be a cracking meeting with some brilliant racing. They have gone for a very top heavy team, but we have Charles, Erik and Michael to match them, and you don’t get any better than them round here! The backup our top 3 have should be the difference for us this week.”
We hope to see as many of you at the MPA as possible, and don’t forget that Under 16s go free with a paying adult!
