TAPES-UP: Kildemand plans to enjoy Robins outings
DANE Peter Kildemand is pleased he and his teammates are now able to focus on riding their bikes after the Robins’ future was secured.
Sponsors Pebley Beach and Excalibur this week announced they have stepped in to help run the club and secure its future after it was revealed the riders were owed a significant amount of money dating back several weeks.
A large proportion of the club’s debt to its riders, originally totalling more than £50,000, has now been paid, and Kildemand is pleased to not have to worry about the finances of both himself and the club as they prepare to enter the play-offs.
“It’s been good news for the club and everything’s good,” he said.
“There’s been a lot about the money this year but there is good news that has now gone out to the public and it’s a bit of safety for the club which is great.
“It means we can enjoy the riding a bit now because that’s what we like to do, and it’s 10 times better to get your money when you do your job and get paid for it without having to fight.”
Kildemand is looking forward to getting back on a bike in Britain after a 10-day break, but is hoping for some consistency from the Blunsdon track with the play-offs around the corner.
“It’s been really nice to be able to chill out a little bit and do some other things and catch up with a few things,” he said.
“I’ve been able to do everything else apart from speedway, but it will be nice to be back at Swindon because we haven’t raced for a while.
“It’s hard to say what will happen, but hopefully the track will be like it was two weeks ago and the same every week so we have a real chance to get some confidence.”
