Archie's first podium
On 15th April Archie got his first podium after finishing 4th in the Sittingbourne Speedway season opener, this was a great result as he was racing against good opposition on far superior bikes, the Iwade track is an odd shape and it took him a while to get to grips, but after a few laps Archie really started to increase his speed.
This was Archies first speedway meeting and his first since his accident so we are all really proud of his brave riding and it bodes well for the season ahead.
A Huge thank you
