Eagles without three riders tonight at Kings Lynn

Eastbourne Eagles ride at King’s Lynn tonight (Wednesday) and will be without three riders.

Lewis Bridger is injured, Lukas Dryml is needed in his native Czech Republic while Denis Gizatullin competes in a Russian pairs championship.

Ricky Wells comes in for Dryml while Chris Schramm replaces Gizatullin. Rider replacement will be used to cover for Bridger.

Bridger missed the match at Wolves on Monday after failing a fitness test just hours before tapes up at Arlington Saturday.

He’d had a bad week, falling heavily at both Peterborough and Swindon.

Bridger hopes to be back for the visit to Lakeside a week on Friday, although the rider is not sure the injuries will heal that quickly.
