BELLE Vue completed a clean sweep of away wins in Thursday’s ROWE Motor Oil Premiership action with a 48-42 victory at King’s Lynn.

The Aces’ top two of Brady Kurtz (14) and Dan Bewley (11+1) were in excellent form, and they were well backed up by Ben Cook with 8+2.

But they found themselves four points down after Jaimon Lidsey retired when leading Heat 12, only to turn the meeting around in dramatic style with back-to-back 5-1s in Heats 13 and 14.

It meant the Stars needed a 5-1 from the decider to level the scores, but those hopes were ended when captain Tobiasz Musielak crashed out. Vadim Tarasenko and Benjamin Basso both scored nine for the hosts.

Cook said: “It’s all well and good getting league points at home, but a place in the play-offs could come down to our ability to take points on the road and tonight we’ve done that.

“We didn’t have things all our own way, for example Jaymo [Jaimon Lidsey] shedding a chain which resulted in King’s Lynn getting a 5-1. It was a very close night.

“This was, I think, my best result as a Belle Vue rider so far and I’m very pleased with how it went tonight, but especially for the team because we had a point to prove here.”

Stars manager Rob Lyon said: “I think the lack of bike time showed tonight. They were just that little bit sharper, and we didn’t adapt to the conditions. Fair play to Belle Vue, they rode it well and took their chances.

“There are a few issues to sort out after a couple of meetings, but it’s early days yet. It’s a fine line between getting it right and getting it wrong, but it will work itself out over a period of time.”

KING’S LYNN 42: Vadim Tarasenko 9, Benjamin Basso 9, Anders Rowe 7+1, Michael Palm Toft 4+2, Niels-Kristian Iversen 4+1, Patryk Wojdylo 2.
BELLE VUE 48: Brady Kurtz 14, Dan Bewley 11+1, Ben Cook 8+2, Jaimon Lidsey 6+1, Connor Mountain 5+1, Connor Bailey 3, Norick Blodorn 1+1.
