Rye House have moved to sign Mathieu Tresarrieu after Tyson Nelson’s working visa application was turned down.

Frenchman Tresarrieu, who joins on loan from Redcar, last rode in the UK for Ipswich in a two-year spell from 2011-12, with the Rockets pleased to rapidly conclude a deal having seen Nelson ruled out for the second time in three seasons.

Promoter Len Silver said: “I think that to be secure in the knowledge that we have seven good riders fully signed up it had to be the right way to go, as I could not face the agony of two years ago.

“It was very easy agreeing terms with Mathieu, who speaks perfect English as opposed to my simple French, and he was delighted to be given the opportunity to ride for the Rockets.”
