With the late withdrawal of Steven Worrall through injury on Friday night, a GB Team which consisted of the young and adventurous Stefan Nielson, Tom Bacon and Danyon Hume and Worrall’s late replacement David Wallinger had a tough afternoon in Herxhiam Germany against a strong quartet from the host nation Germany, Denmark and Sweden.
Although the British boys only ended up with a 7 point score, all the boys enjoyed the occasion and learnt from the experience.
Quotes from the riders –
Bacon – “Learnt a lot and was right in the mix, just needed more experience”
Hume – “I rode well and was on the pace and in the bunch”
Nielson – “Safe to say I was brought down to earth, I tried my hardest and learnt a lot, just proves that we need more events like this to get more experience on European Tracks and bike set ups”
A British Team will now travel to Nuestade Donau on the 29th April to compete against Germany, Denmark and Poland.
