Robert Set For Semis

Robert faces a tough test against many of the leading riders from Eastern Europe, including the current Under 21 champion Emil Sajfudinov, but goes there with plenty of hope:

“I know that I will have to be at my very best to make the top eight but I certainly feel that I can do it. I am flying out on Friday morning to try to give me the best preparation possible for the event and if all goes well then hopefully I will be able to go one step better than last season where I was reserve.”

Robert meanwhile has sourced a route back to Glasgow on Sunday morning and all being well should be available for the afternoon meeting with Mildenhall.
