HOLDERS Poole will be represented by Chris Holder and Bjarne Pedersen at the Elite League Pairs Championship at Ipswich, on Saturday, September 4.

The Pirates won the title at Eastbourne on a memorable night last season but this year’s event will take place on the newly-shaped Ipswich track.

Home hopes rest on the shoulders of Scott Nicholls and Danny King in a star-studded field which is sure to pull in a bumper crowd on a big weekend for the sport.

Hans Andersen, who won the event as a Poole rider last August, will partner Peter Karlsson in a powerful Belle Vue pairing.
