ARCHIE Freeman says he’s “buzzing” to be making his Belle Vue debut in 2022 after making the switch from Scottish rivals Armadale.
The 17-year-old is one of three new recruits for the Colts, along with Nathan Ablitt and Freddy Hodder, in the upcoming National Development League campaign.
Freeman said: “Belle Vue is a club I’ve wanted to ride for a while now and I’m just super happy to have the opportunity to finally do that in 2022.
“I’ll admit, when I first rode the NSS I didn’t really enjoy it that much because I was more comfortable on the smaller tracks.
“But that got me thinking and I knew I wouldn’t get very far in the sport with that kind of attitude, so it was an issue I needed to get past.
“On future visits, I approached riding there in a completely different way and I started to realise that I was capable of having a good meeting on a much bigger track than I’m used to.
“It gave me confidence in myself and by the end of 2021 I was enjoying every lap of Belle Vue and I’m buzzing to be able to call this place my home track.”
