PREVIEW: NLRC

Friday September 28, 2018
LEICESTER’S Paul Chapman and Sons Arena hosts the 2018 Teng Tools National League Riders Championship this Sunday (September 30, 1pm) – and home man Connor Mountain will be among the favourites for the title.

The 21-year-old demonstrated his potential for the Watling JCB Lions in the Premiership in the latter stages of the season – and has also been an inspired signing for Coventry in the third tier who also race at the Beaumont Park complex.

Said Mountain: “I’ve had a pretty good year overall and if I could do well on Sunday then that would be a nice way to start winding down with the winter break coming up.

“It’s definitely something that I want to do well in and hopefully well enough to win it.

“I’d love to do that not just for myself but for the supporters and promotions at Coventry and Leicester.

“I know what I need to do and even though I’ve been busy at times racing in all three leagues, this is definitely a meeting that has been at the front of my thinking.”

Former Champions Max Clegg and Ben Morley will be two riders looking to reclaim the title from a competitive 16-rider field.

Admission is £16 adults, £8 teenagers (aged 13-18) while kids 12 and under go Free. Gates open at 11.30am and programmes will be available for just £2.50.
