Eastbourne Eagles manager, Connor Dugard, is welcoming two of his riders racing elsewhere tonight (20 April).
Georgie Wood and Kelsey Dugard will be on the Isle of Wight, racing for the Weymouth Wildcats, who take on the Isle of Wight Warriors in The Bryn Williams Celebration Meeting.
It’ll be a role reversal for the pair, with Kelsey taking on the role of skipper – a position held by Georgie when the two race for the Eagles. Matthew Bates was due to captain the side, but has apparently pulled out injured.
Connor said, “Bike time is the best kind of fitness both mentally and physically, so I am more than happy to let them ride as and where they can. Hopefully it’ll give us the edge over Plymouth tomorrow. We aren’t going there just for the drive, that’s for sure!”
