Kelsey Dugard is to return to the Eastbourne Eagles for the 2017 season.
Kelsey joins Mark Baseby, Connor Coles, Georgie Wood, Tom Brennan & Charley Powell as the 6th rider for the IT First Eagles.
Team Manager, Promoter big brother, Connor said, "Kelsey improved a lot last year. I'll be one of the first to admit I didn't think he was up to it and at times I have told him where he's at as opposed to where he thinks he's at. In fairness, I look at his average and it has gone down however the league was harder last year and he did ride at number 2 so that was fair enough and he didn't actually crash as much as he did in the previous year.
"We have a deal with Kelsey with regards to his fitness and bike maintenance which has been a major problem in the past however he has promised us that will change. He really has to crack on this year and establish himself at this level as riders that started at the same time as him really have progressed massively in the past two seasons."
Kelsey said, "It's great to be back at Eastbourne. I understand what's expected of me this time around. I really enjoyed last year at the Isle of Wight with Base (Club number 1 Mark Baseby) and I want to enjoy it again. I look forward to seeing all the fans."
The last signing is due to be announced at the end of this month by the IT First Eagles Management.
