Workington took a crucial away win in the first leg of the Champion Shield Final against Lakeside.
Lakeside who has resided with the Rye House track recently could not keep Workington from claiming a win in their first leg of the final. But it was a very close meeting, which ended 44-46.
Workington managed to take the win despite using rider replacement all night for Dan Bewley, and furthermore they lost Ty Proctor to an injury during the meeting, so it was a five man team who secured the win.
“We did what we haven’t done for a while, win away. To do it with 5 riders after Ty Proctor was injured early must be some kind of achievement. We still got the 2nd leg tonight at home, where we have to win!”
“We are probably going to meet Lakeside in the League Final as well, so now they know not to take us for granted. Compared to other times at Rye House, where they ride now, I had a really good meeting. This year I’ve showed that I can ride tracks I’ve been really poor at in the past. That’s great to know for the future, haha.”
As mentioned here, the 2nd leg of the Championship Shield is tonight at home in Workington.
