Workington Comets boss: We can be champions

Workington Comets owner Keith Denham said his team showed their title winning credentials as they topped 60 points for the second successive home match.

Workington overcame Edinburgh 62-31 in a dominant display where each rider was paid for at least one win with Kyle Howarth topping the score charts for the third match out of four with a paid 16 points.

All the Comets were paid for double figure scores and they ran only two last places in what was a dominant display and showed they are a force to be reckoned with at home.

The result leaves the Comets top of the northern section of the league cup.

Denham said: “This is the signs of a championship winning team and I cannot fault the lads tonight.

“Kyle is one of the finds of the season. He asked to come here and I am pleased to have had faith in him because he has been able to deal with it.

“However, it is key we take points away from Derwent Park and I feel we can do that because we have a good side.”

Number one Rene Bach managed to score in every heat and Denham said that it was the Dane's best meeting so far this season.

Denham added that Bach is getting his confidence back and getting better with every race after seriously breaking his leg last year.

He also had words of praise for visiting rider and former Comet Craig Cook who was the only Monarchs rider to offer any resistance against the Comets scoring more than half Edinburgh’s points.

Denham said: “I was impressed with Craig and it was nice to see three Cumbrians in heat nine with Richard and Adam as well.

“They all rode hard and it was the best race of the night.”

There was another healthy turnout for the match which pleased Denham and they were able to see some of the stars of the future following the match in a few second half matches which Denham said would become a regular feature as part of the club's continuing collaboration with the Northside training track.

Do we need a tourism authority to promote Cumbria?

Yes. Without proactive promotion we lose business

No. Tourist businesses should pay for their own marketing

If promotion is left to the tourism industry the Lakes will win and north Cumbria will lose
