THREE DOWN, FOUR TO GO FOR MONARCHS

EDINBURGH have confirmed the Riss brothers will both be back at Armadale next season.

Having already re-signed World Longtrack Champion Erik, the five-times Premier League champions have now revealed that his brother Mark will also be returning to the West Lothian circuit.

The return of the two Germans and the acquisition of Ricky Wells from Workington gives Edinburgh three of their seven starters ahead of next season.

Mark Riss said: “I am very pleased to be back with the Monarchs. I haven’t talked with Ricky Wells yet but I think he is a nice guy.  


“I think it would be good if I can start at reserve and get more points at the beginning. I would feel comfortable then when I went into the team at maybe No. 3 or 4.


“It was a learning process for my first year, different from Germany. It was hard to get into it but I felt quite comfortable in the end. I can do a lot better next year. I have got the Armadale track dialled in now, and I really like it. I feel I can ride outside and inside.”
