Haines: “The Hardest One Yet”
Sheffield man Joe Haines was absolutely delighted last night having regained the British Under 21′s Championship he won in 2010. Speaking after the meeting, Haines admitted that he found this meeting harder than ever, saying “This is awesome, I mean last time I won it in 2010, and I thought tonight would be a bit easier but it was the hardest one yet by far, so I am delighted with the win”.
The Bolton youngster had endured an awful spell of injuries so far in his career, including a life threatening crash in Australia last winter that left him in a coma. Yet he now appears to have returned to where he was before his injury, and he is delighted himself at how he has comeback, and finally feels a lot of hard work has paid off. “From where I was a year and a half or two years ago with my injuries, to get where I am to win tonight was awesome. It’s took a lot of hard work but I think I am finally getting back to where I was to be honest”.
Haines will spend the season riding at reserve for Premier League Sheffield, and this win should certainly help boost his confidence as he aims to push his season forward.”Now I just want to kick on with the Premier League really. Sheffield is my main aim and hopefully I can score big for them and then hopefully I will dip into the Elite League a bit more and just see what happens from there”.
