Joe Excited At Dream Move
New 'Tru7.com' Witches signing Joe Jacobs is delighted to be finally be wearing the Witches race jacket after growing up on the Foxhall terraces.
The 22-year-old has come in to replace Paco Castagna at reserve and said a year out of the sport has helped him recover his enjoyment this season before the call from Chris Louis came.
"I had a year out last year as I rode in all three leagues the year before and I needed a break to be honest," said Jacobs. "I didn't know where I was at, I got overtired and stopped enjoying it. I stuck around last year helping Rohan (Tungate) at Ipswich and then this year it came about that there was a team spot at Belle Vue and I knew I definitely wanted to come back and ride.
"I signed with them in the Elite League and I wasn't riding too much so I did a 28 day deal with the Isle of Wight in the National League. I sent Chris a message a couple of times saying I was keen to be in the Premier League as I wanted to be racing against a better level of riders. Then I had the call on Saturday offering me a spot and it was something I was never going to say no to. I'm grateful for the opportunity and hopefully can get on the gas now."
