Many congratulations to Redcar Agilia Bears German Star Erik Riss, who won the Championship Riders title at Sheffield this afternoon in fine style!

In a meeting which had a very strong looking line up, Riss won his first outing beating Todd Kurtz, Jake Allen and Zaine Kennedy. After suffering some bike problems in his second ride he ended up finishing third, but then went on to win his next two including vital wins over Adam Ellis and Chris Harris.

His fifth ride was probably the best race of the night. Up against Rasmus Jensen, Nick Morris and Ryan Douglas our German star ended up finishing second, but not before some great laps of speedway with all four riders making numerous passes. Riss ended up with 12 points from his rides, joint top scoring with Ryan Douglas and Sam Masters. As only two progressed straight to the final, and with all riders having identical records, lots were drawn and Riss was the unfortunate man to have to go into the Semi Finals.

Up against Danny King, Jake Allen and Adam Ellis, Riss made a superb gate and led from the front to book his place in the final, with King joining him in second place. In the grand final, Riss rode a superb opening two bends to hit the front, and despite a late challenge from Sheffield man King, the German held on for the win and bring the Bears some silverware!

Massive congratulations to Erik, and massive thanks to all the Bears supporters who made the trip to Sheffield to cheer on Erik!
