Bomber Rockets Into Rye

“My 2017 club has now been sorted. It is with great pleasure that I can announce that I will be joining Rye House next season as they make the move into the top flight of speedway in the newly named SGB Premiership.”

 “It is a new challenge and one I am really looking forward to. The owners of the club are investing heavily in the stadium and putting together a side that will do the supporters proud.”

 “ Already my old Bees team mate Scott Nicholls has been announced and I know he and I will have a ding dong battle to be the number one for the side ….. although with the planned signings yet to be named we may have some competition for that spot … and that is going to be good for the team.”

Rye House Co-Promoter Steve Jenson confides that, “The first time I met Chris was during a pre-meeting track walk at this year’s British Semi-Final at Scunthorpe. I was immediately impressed by the way he talked about the sport, and by his professional credentials.  

 “That stuck with me, and as soon I heard that Chris was looking for a winter move to new pastures I wanted him to be a part of the Team. Like Scott (Nicholls), he is going to be a key part of the squad, and like Scott he is going to bring much more to us than just the points he scores on the track.” 

“I was clearly a man in demand following my public announcement that I was leaving Brandon. “I have to say it was really nice to have all the phone calls and to feel really wanted. All bar two of the clubs in the new Premiership were interested in me.”

 “I must admit to not knowing too much about Team BMR prior to that point. “I remember the track walk at Scunthorpe, and I had also done a Pairs meeting (the 2015 season finale Pair of Aces) before that at Rye, but that was about it.”

 “What swung it, though, was when I sat down with Steve and Warren (Scott), and saw the way they think, the way they go about business as a professional club, and what is happening with the stadium and going forward. I liked the sound of what they were looking to achieve, and it seemed the perfect fit in terms of what we could offer each other as well as work with my race team.”

 As for my aims for 2017 …, “My first priority is to have a good season with Rye House. The team they are putting together sounds really good, and I am looking forward to being a part of it.”

“I have also been talking to Rosco (Great Britain Team Manager Alun Rossiter) to keep my name in the hat. I want to force my way back into the World Cup squad, and to be a part of the qualifiers for the Grand Prix in order to get back into the series.”
