Eagles’ Joonas in for Riders’ champs

Eastbourne Eagles are backing their riders for success at the Elite League Riders’ Championship next week.

The Eagles have confirmed they will be represented by Joonas Kylmakorpi and possibly Simon Gustafsson at the Abbey Stadium in Swindon on Saturday October 20.

The duo qualified for Eastbourne as the two highest average point scorers throughout the season. They will compete against the best riders from the rest of the Elite League teams.

Finnish star Kylmakorpi has been involved with the Eagles since 2001 but only competed for the team for four seasons and made 135 appearances in the past ten years.
