SWINDON Robin Adam Ellis revealed he rode both legs of the SGB Premiership Grand Final with a broken wrist and could now face surgery to rectify the damage.

The Brit picked up the injury in the club’s play-off semi-final second leg at Poole Pirates, after falling twice in the early stages of the meeting.

After passing himself fit to ride in the final, the 21-year-old says he will now await the results of a CT scan to see whether he has to go under the knife.

Despite the injury, Ellis said he was more than happy to ride through the pain barrier in the Grand Final and do his bit for the team.

“I’m not sure what the extent of the damage is, they’ve obviously said it is broken I had a scan and I’ve got to go back on October 27 so I should know a bit more by then,” he said.

“It was obviously sore, but with only two meetings left I wanted to try and get the season done especially with it being the finals.

“You can kind of put it out of your mind a little bit more, but it is good it’s happened now because I’ve got all winter to recover.

“The doctor said it was broken and it would only heal by pinning it so hopefully they can get that done soon and I can get back on the bike as soon as possible.”

Whilst the former Poole Pirate says it was uncomfortable for him to ride with the injury, he thinks it was more than worth it as the Robins clinched the league title in nail-biting fashion.

“Before the final, the doctor basically said if I could put up with the pain while racing, then it wouldn’t get any worse so that was pretty lucky,” he added.

“The first leg at Swindon was difficult, we had strapped it up but it still didn’t feel too good so it was a bit of a mission.

“But then on Wednesday I strapped it up a bit better and as soon as the meeting started it went to the back of my mind.

“It was definitely worth it, it would’ve been really disappointing if we didn’t win especially as we finished top.

“It was the perfect way to finish the season, in dramatic fashion in the last heat which made it even better for the fans.”
