Chris scores 8 from 4 rides in the Rockets home win to the Somerset Rebels - 52:38
Chris protected the rockets advantage with a simply stunning victory in Heat 9 as he delivered not one but two of his trademark passes from the back to overhaul both Jake Allen and Patrick Hougaard .
“We pretty much did to Somerset what they did to us last night. It was good to bounce back with a home win, and all the boys rode well. We have always said that when all seven of us click, we would get good results, and although a few of us had up-and-down nights – I had a last place in my first race which I think is my first one here this year – overall it was a real team effort.”
About his dramatic Heat 9 display, Bomber said in his typically unassuming style, “I didn’t make the best of starts – no surprise there! - and coming off the first corner I didn’t feel great, but once I moved out and got my momentum I felt fast, and I was lucky that I managed to pick them off one by one. It was a great race, and I really enjoyed it.”
