Young Lions Training Camp Well Received

Despite Storm Dennis doing its best to disrupt some carefully laid plans, the speedway training camp for twenty up-and-coming youth group riders went ahead after a superb effort from the Wightlink Warriors track team who worked wonders readying and maintaining the Smallbrook Stadium circuit.

Neil Vatcher, the speedway manager of the GB Youth set-up was delighted with his groups’ time on the Island. He said, “We’ve had three great days of intense training at the home of the Wightlink Warriors. The weekend weather was totally unhelpful but thanks to the magnificent efforts of the Warrior’s staff and volunteers we enjoyed a thoroughly beneficial camp.

All the riders and their helpers gelled together brilliantly and we have seen lots of progress both on and off track. We’ve also been able to map out some key milestones for the riders to aim for over the new season and we’ll be monitoring their development closely.

My thanks go to our coaches namely Steve Worrall, Matt Read, Chris Neville and Andy Hague. Their expert input and encouragement was terrific and I can’t wait to see all the good advice put into action when racing gets under way.”
