American duo can lead Wolves for years

Wolverhampton boss Peter Adams is hoping Luke Becker and Broc Nicol can be the ‘bedrock’ of the club for many years to come.

The American duo won the AMA National Speedway Pairs Championship earlier this year.

It was another fine example of their potential together following on from last summer’s Speedway of Nations before both finishing on the rostrum in this year’s American Championships.

While racing is currently on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, Becker has sealed a return to the Parrys International Wolves, where he was crowned 2019 Rider of the Year, while Nicol makes the step up to the top flight for the very first time.

And with the Black Country being a haven for successful American double acts down the years, Adams hopes these two also see a long-term future in the West Midlands.

“Cradley had Greg (Hancock) and Billy (Hamill) and Wolverhampton had Sam (Ermolenko) and Ronnie (Correy),” Adams said. “And while I don’t think we can expect Luke and Broc to quite hit those heights in the immediate future, they’ve certainly got the potential to form a formidable partnership further down the line.

“Luke did better than we expected him to in his first season and we were obviously delighted with the progress he made

. If we can nurture these two, who are without doubt the best two from across the pond in a very long time, then hopefully they can be the bedrock of Wolverhampton Speedway for years to come.”
