BATES RELISHING CARDIFF INVOLVEMENT

Tuesday June 27, 2017
BRITISH youngster Josh Bates can’t wait to be involved on the biggest stage at Cardiff next month.

Bates, 21, has been named as a track reserve for the Adrian Flux British FIM Speedway Grand Prix at the Principality Stadium on July 22.

It is a huge opportunity for the Leicester and Sheffield rider to rub shoulders with speedway’s biggest stars.

And admits his call-up alongside fellow Great Britain squad member Adam Ellis is a huge moment in his career.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” Bates said. “It’s one of my life goals, to be at Cardiff. Even just to be a reserve is amazing and I can’t wait for it.

“I’m going all out to make it the best day possible, not just for me but for my sponsors as well because it’s a big moment for me.

“It’s going to cost me a bit more money, but I’m happy to do it because I know how big it is to be involved at Cardiff.

“If I was to get a ride it would just be incredible, but I’m just pleased to be involved in such a huge meeting.”
