Remi Burchardt signes for A & T

(2005 Web-site Archive)

Astley & Tyldesley Cycle Speedway Club are delighted to announce the signing of the reigning European Junior Champion, Remi Burchardt, from Slesin in Poland. 19 years old Burchardt (pictured leading a race in last year's European Junior Team Cup) won the title at Bydgoszcz, Poland last July, and is due to arrive in England next week. His signing comes in the wake of A & T's Tomasz Wlodarczyk not confirming his return this season. With A & T having moved up from the Northern League to the more competitive Midlands / North League, it was imperative that Wlodarczyk was adequately replaced. Burchardt was ranked no. 3 in the official Polish rankings for 2004 and he should form a great spearhead with reigning European Champion Damian Zareba for A & T in 2005. Zareba was ranked no. 2 in the official Polish rankings for 2004.
