Charles Wright update
Bears captain Charles Wright sustained severe bruising to his back and neck, as well as concussion after his frightening crash in yesterday’s Championship clash against Somerset. Wright was the unlucky victim in a first bend Heat 13 pile up, as he found himself with nowhere to go after Erik Riss had been brought down by Nick Morris. He received lengthy treatment on track which caused the meeting to be delayed by 45 minutes, with the medics on duty exercising extreme caution due to Charles’ neck and back complaint.
Wright has now been given an automatic 9 day suspension that is compulsory after being concussed, meaning that he will be out of action for the Bears until at least Monday 9th September. Unfortunately, this means that he will miss tomorrow’s (Sunday) Championship League Rider’s Championship at Sheffield, as well as the Bears KO Cup fixtures against Eastbourne and league match at Scunthorpe. The Redcar management are currently seeking guests for all 3 meetings.
Redcar will still have one representative at the CLRC tomorrow in Erik Riss, who has been a revelation for the Bears since his mid season signing.
