2017 Isle of Wight Training Camp a Huge Success

Twenty Eight of the Young Lions squad, are all set for the start of the 2017 season, after three hard working but enjoyable days at the 2017 GB Training Camp on the Isle of Wight.

A mix of Under 21 riders which included the likes of Josh Bates, Dan Bewley and James Shanes and Under 16s the likes of Kyle Bickley, Jordan Jenkins and Leon Flint along with other age groups and some as young as nine years old were all put through their paces by the speedway trainers Steven Worrall and Paul Hurry, and also the Isle of Wight fitness trainer James Dean.

Two days were spent on track in beautiful spring sunshine, and one day was spent in the gym and classroom, not only working on fitness and nutrition but also some media and mechanical training.

GB Youth boss Neil Vatcher enthused, “every single one of the riders has come away from the camp having learnt over the three days, and that is all what we could of hoped for.

Last year we did a camp for the first time which was a great experience, but this years camp was an even bigger success both on and off track.

Everyone that attended worked extremely hard over the course of the three days, riders, trainers and all the track staff at the Isle of Wight venue.”

Vatcher concluded, “I would like to personally thank both Steven Worrall and Paul Hurry who did a great job working with all the boys, and especially to the BSPA for their continued support and most importantly all our series sponsors for without their support none of this would be possible”.
