To begin the weekend Georgia was down in Newport for the Annual Welsh Women's Open event. Was a very good day of racing for Georgia scoring 13 points including a race win but a fall in her last race she finished in 9th place due to how close all the scores were!
On to a dryer Sunday the Aces team were away to a wet Birmingham Monarchs track. The Aces were down for the first part of the match but following two 6-4 heat wins to the aces from pairings Corey Burt (1st), Lee Aris (3rd) against Birmigham pairing Paul Herd (4th) and Craig Whitehead (2nd) in heat 11; and Brandon Whetton (1st) and Tom Bewick (3rd) in heat 12. The two teams were now drawing on 59 points. It was heat 14 that the Aces were in the lead on points for the first time with pairing Scott Doherty and Lee Aris taking a 6-4 heat advantage over Birmingham putting the scores at 68-70. Going into the last few heats the Aces unfortunately a rider down and the Birmingham team taking two 7-3 heat wins in heats 16 and 18 the match went to Birmingham with the scores finishing on 95-82
Great weekend of racing for all well done everyone!
