News from Coventry Bees and Storm

Coventry Buildbase Bees have made a change to the original 2015 team with Lewis Bridger replacing Cameron Woodward.

Woodward had been one of the non-European riders caught up in the visa problems surrounding most of the Australian riders.

Further bad news came when it was discovered that the femur Woodward broke at the end of last season had not healed and he would need a bone graft. This cast a big doubt on his availability for any of the year so Bees moved quickly to sign Bridger.

Bridger rode for Lakeside last season and had intended to take a break from the sport. However a change of heart led to Bees promoter Colin Horton moving in quickly for his signature.

Bridger had already ridden for Bees, being part of the 2010 championship team, joining mid season.

His 6.72 average means he will slot into a second string berth behind Danny King.

This means Bees will have six British riders out of seven this season, the exception being number one, Hans Andersen.

The 2010 line up is now Chris Harris (Capt), Hans Andersen, Danny King, Lewis Bridger, Stuart Robson, Jason Garrity, James Sarjeant.
