GLASGOW captain Chris ‘Bomber’ Harris has vowed he’ll bounce back with a bang from a tough start to his season as he kicks off his team’s bid for league glory.
The former World No 6 is still to find his best form since joining the Tigers in a big winter move.
And on Monday night he failed to score for Premiership side Rye House as he struggled with his machinery.
But experienced Harris, who raced in more than 100 Grand Prix, plans to stick with his famous never-say-die attitude and believes he can recapture the performances that have made him one of the most popular riders on the circuit.
The 35-year-old Cornishman, who takes on reigning league champions Sheffield in Glasgow tomorrow, said: “I always turn up with 100% effort or more for anyone I ride for, so for me not to be scoring well disappoints me more than anyone else.
“There have been so many rain-offs and I have had a few issues with my bikes, which I am not happy about, but the bike issues are being sorted and I am still in love with my racing.
“There is a long season ahead yet and I’m looking forward to racing my bike and proving people wrong.”
Harris moves to No 1 for the visit of Sheffield, looking to build on his side’s run of form which saw them beat Edinburgh home and away in the Championship Shield.
And he believes they’re due to dish out a serious beating.
He said: “The team have been great. We got the wins home and away against Edinburgh and not all the team were firing – so I think once we all get settled, and all seven of us are firing, we’ll give a team a good hammering.
“Sheffield have a strong team, so if we can get the win, it will lay down a marker and give the team and the fans belief.
“It will force other teams to take note.”
