Thriller At The Speedway

Monarchs Snatch League Victory From Bears

    What a fight we put up right to the final heat against the powerful Edinburgh Monarchs last night. Played out in wet, chilly conditions the riders gave their all in a highly entertaining opening to the Bears home Premier league account. If we had not been missing two injured riders the result might well have been very different. Oh and if the American Ryan Fisher had cleaned up for a maximum 15 points from 4 rides then that might also have helped the Bears cause.   There ....

Bears Pot Stoke For Victory

    Redcar Bears finally brought that winning feeling home to Teesside with an emphatic 51-44 point victory over Stoke Potters in the Premier Trophy.   That margin would have been far wider had not Stoke taken a full 8 points when wearing the black’n’white helmet, a lifeline thrown out when sides are 10 points adrift. But Stoke also had to thank guest heat leader Michal Makovsky for amassing an impressive 15 points and in 17 year old Taylor Poole the Potters have ....

Brummies Give Bears A Bashing

  Redcar Bears got a bit of a mauling last night at home to the well-fancied Birmingham Brummies. That means we have yet to win a home meeting and so are not sitting too clever in the Premier Trophy. We will need to see a big change in direction before the Premier League opens towards the end of the month.   Despite veteran skipper Gary Havelock leading Redcar Bears into an early lead we were quickly pegged back before being overhauled and eventually comfortably beaten by the ....

Diamonds Shade It In Final Heat Decider

    It was an exciting challenge match tonight at Redcar Bears. Sadly the old enemy Newcastle Diamonds just shaded it by the narrowest of margins in the very last heat. It also pains me to say it but they look like being a very useful side this season. Redcar might not be too shabby either.   It was a far more encouraging display this week from Redcar Bears as they build up to the season proper. First home match is Good Friday v Sheffield.   After being soundly ....
