Aces Pushed Hard In Close Encounter
Belle Vue burst back onto the Premiership scene on Friday, securing a hard-earned 48-42 win over Swindon in a meeting that was described as “too close for comfort” by team boss Mark Lemon.

Despite being down two of their regular riders, bringing in Matt Williamson as a guest at No.6 while operating R/R for Bradley Wilson-Dean at No.2, the Carpets4Less Robins proved tricky customers.

Down by 2 points after Heat 5, the Rentruck Aces fought vigorously to recover the deficit and set to work ensuring their rivals didn’t deny them victory, and sparks were flying between the two sides.

After multiple instances of the visitors drawing the scores, at double 5-1 in Heats 9 and 10 helped the home team establish a more comfortable cushion with they valiantly defended to the end.


Kenneth Bjerre leads Adam Ellis and Justin Sedgmen

Kenneth Bjerre made a triumphant return to the National Speedway Stadium and proved he had not lost his flair for the Mancunian shale by securing an impressive 13 points from five rides.

Close behind was Steve Worrall who contributed 10+2 of his own, while Dan Bewley and Max Fricke reaffirmed their skills at home and rounded off the top scorers with 7+1 and 7 respectively.

Of his team’s performance, Lemon said: “Swindon were weakened by the fact they riders missing but even so they did apply quite a bit of pressure on us, but I believed in my team to come through.

“With the amount of time between now and our last fixture, we were a little ring rusty but everyone pulled together and did a fantastic job to secure the win on the night and the three league points.

“A couple of our guys were running new engines on Friday which weren’t performing to the level that is more typical of them. Craig Cook was one and you could physically see it wasn’t like him.

“Kenneth put in a fabulous night’s work, resuming normal services and the rest of the boys were solid. Of course we want to win our meetings comfortably and not leave things to the last minute.

“In fairness to Swindon, they put on a great show and went away with a point. Collectively as a team we weren’t thrilled about that but it proves there’s work to do and we’re going to get stuck in.”

Speedway action returns to Manchester next Friday, May 26, when the Belle Vue Colts take on the Stoke Potters. Tickets are on sale now at www.bellevueaces.co.

Swindon An 'Interesting Challenge', Says Fricke
Max Fricke is feeling pumped up for his return to Manchester this Friday when Belle Vue take on Swindon at the National Speedway Stadium and says they’re determined to make up for lost time.

The club No.1 has made a strong start to his third season with the Rentruck Aces and has lately been making huge strides on the continent in his pursuit of qualifying for the 2018 Speedway GPs.

He said: “I've been to Italy a couple of times for the qualifiers and it’s one of the biggest things on my calendar this year. I’m really pleased with my performance and to have made it to the semis.

“My first few heats went really well and it was really satisfying to finish my afternoon second. What made it even cooler was knowing that Craig [Cook] and Kenneth [Bjerre] had also done really well.”


Max Fricke leads Jake Allen, Josh Grajczonek & Lee Payne

Fricke is confident his recent ventures have kept him sharp ahead of the Rentruck Aces’ return to action against the Carpets4Less Robins as they target a return to the top of the Premiership table.

They currently rank third with 14 points, level with the Poole Pirates and eight behind league leaders Wolverhampton, though unlike their rivals they have the advantage of meetings in hand.

Fricke continued: “We've not raced in the UK for what’s going on three weeks now so we've fallen a little behind at the top but I think once we’ve run a few more fixtures we’ll be back in the mix.

“Our aim is to establish ourselves comfortably in the top four because at the end of the day, it’s all about ensuring our place in the Play Offs; finishing top of the table would be an added bonus.

“I think we can expect a tough match against Swindon. They’ve got some pretty powerful heat leaders in Jason Doyle and Nick Morris so it'll be really interesting to see how we get on.

“I don't think you can expect anyone to be below par at Belle Vue because the track is such a leveller. You can have people who've been struggling go there and do really well, and vice versa.

“Having Kenneth back in the team will be a huge help. He proved instrumental when we visited the Abbey Stadium and I think with all our top guns assembled we should present a strong front.”
