Riss: Easy choice to come back to Redcar
German star Erik Riss admits it was not a tough choice to come back to Redcar after his very successful spell last season. Riss won the Championship Riders title at Sheffield last season, and was an integral part of the Bears success, finishing the season with a 8.41 average.
Riss admitted that once he knew he was riding in the Championship again, it was an easy choice for him to make. And despite winning the KO Cup this year, he is hoping to go one better in the league next season:
“I’m happy to say I’m going to be back at Redcar next year. I really enjoyed this year, and I really enjoyed riding at Redcar since the moment I joined. The promotion has been awesome and the fans have been awesome too.
It wasn’t really a hard choice once I decided to do the Championship next season. There wasn’t any other club where I would have liked to ride.
Last year was really good, it was just a shame that we could not go one further in the league but next year is a new year and hopefully we can take it one step further!”
