This weekend Team GB take on six other nations in the final of the European Under 19 Pairs which is taking place in Gdansk, Poland on Saturday afternoon.
Representing GB will be Drew Kemp and Anders Rowe with Daniel Gilkes also traveling to Poland as the third member of the team.
After making their debut in this competition in 2020, GB Boss Neil Vatcher believes that this coming weekend the GB trio are genuine contenders for a place on the rostrum.
Vatcher commented” We are fortunate that it is being held at Gdansk, as this is Drews home Polish track, and although he has not represented the club to date, he did travel to Poland pre-season and has had a lot of laps around the North Polish circuit.”
“We also all know that Anders spent the 2020 season racing in Poland and he has knowledge of Polish circuits, and along with Daniel recently making his European debut and doing a good job, we are certainly going there to challenge for a medal, but also respect that this is a European Final and every heat will be really tough.”
GB will be up against teams from the host nation Poland and also Denmark, Sweden, Czech Republic, Latvia and Germany.
