The Eastbourne Eagles have announced their new Number 1 rider for the 2017 season.
After the point limit was confirmed, a call was made to Mark Baseby, by Eagles manager, Connor Dugard, who said, "Mark guested for us a couple of times last year and just like Georgie and Colesy he gives 110% every time. He only rode Arlington twice last year and he showed how good he is round our circuit.
"I've built the team very much like last year with 3 potential number 1's in Base, Georgie & Colesy. He was near on untouchable round the Island last year and he was beating top number ones. He is another rider like Georgie and Connor who put 2 points on their averages.”
Baseby said, "I'm really happy to be joining Eastbourne. Having guested for them last year the atmosphere is a great one and I get on with everyone there. I’m really excited to get the season going and I can't wait to get some practice in and meeting all the fans.”
