Last night at Redcar, Kyle Bickley turned out to represent the Berwick FTS Bandits in the British Under-21 Final, unfortunately without his Berwick team mate Leon Flint along side due to injury.
In a tough field, it was going to stretch him to the limit, however Bickley started in Heat One with two good points having passed Jake Mulford as Tom Brennan motored on well in front.
After a tight opening bend to Heat Eight, Bickley battled with Drew Kemp, but the Ipswich man took the win leaving Bickley now on four points. The Bandit and Bullet initially led Heat 12 but was confidently rounded by Jordan Palin of Scunthorpe on the first and second bend, and was also passed by Joe Thompson, but retook second well on the last lap for a third second place and six points total, while Bickley was again out in the 16th but could only take third behind Dan Thompson and Jason Edwards, putting the Berwick man on seven points.
Bickley finished his qualifying push in Heat 20 but couldn’t get round home man, Jordan Jenkins, so took another second ahead of Tom Spencer to finish on nine points, but that was one short of a semi place ending his night.
