Rene Bach hails Workington Comets win at Ipswich

Workington Comets Danish rider Rene Bach praised the whole team as they comprehensively beat Ipswich on Thursday night.

The Comets had gone into the match on the back of a disappointing draw away to Glasgow and with memories of two heavy defeats to the Witches last year.

However, they provided a stunning performance to beat the East Anglian side 51-39 and take the maximum four league points on offer with Bach scoring a faultless 15 point maximum.

He said: “It was really nice to have a good meeting because I haven’t been on a bike much recently but all the team did a very good job.

“On paper it was best performance of the season and it was one of those meetings where everybody chipped in with points. It shows how strong a team we are and people will know we are the one of the teams to watch and that we will be going for it.”

“The track there is a bit like Newcastle and I was racing it a bit harder.

“I just seemed to find a set-up that worked from the first heat so I never changed anything after that.”

Bach surrendered the number one jacket to captain Richard Lawson and said moving down to number three has helped take a bit of the pressure off himself.

However, he added that he was determined to get the number one spot back.

He said: “It is good for me because it takes some of the pressure off and I can see how the track is performing in heats one and two.

“Richard has been flying all season and deserves to be there.

“But I want to be number one before the end of the season and that gives me something to aim for.

“I will try everything to get the position back.”

Bach admitted it had been hard having so many meetings rained off but he was very pleased to see everybody scoring points.

The Comets will hope to maintain their 100 per cent record when they entertain Glasgow tomorrow although the meeting could be in doubt due to heavy rain.

He has recently been released from Elite League side Peterborough but felt being picked for them at the start of the season was a bonus and he now has more time to concentrate riding for the Comets as well as his Danish side Fjelsted.
