Here’s an update from Ollie on his season so far…
The season is just starting to get under-way and as usual the bad and cold weather returns, although first few meetings haven’t suffered too badly with it only one getting abandoned due to the weather. I’ve had both my press and practices with photos and on track practice for the fans and my first premier league meeting was 18/03/14 at Peterborough v Rye house and I scored 4+1 from 4 rides which was a decent start with it being the first meeting and being race rusty.
My next fixture was the was the following Friday (21/03/14) at Coventry against Cradley Heathens which was my first national League match which I scored a maximum of 6 points from 2 rides but then the match was abandoned due too the track conditions which was getting worse as the races went on , my next fixture came the next day Saturday (22/03/14) at Leicester with me riding for Peterborough in Premier league in a Interleague competition as Leicester are In the Elite League and I scored 8 Points from 4 rides which I was happy with my performance considering my average I have to start on in the league is 3 points.
Next match was at Peterborough against Plymouth (25/03/14) and had a good night scoring 5+2 from my first 3 rides but then disaster struck when the floods lights at the stadium wouldn’t stay on due to an electrical fault under the track that the track staff couldn’t fix immediately so this meeting also got abandoned.
So all in all my season has started quite well and is very promising and a good start to build on for the rest of the year!
