The Tigers had a strange line-up at Armadale. Josh (as expected) was on duty for Somerset in the Premiership and
Lasse was missing having hurt his knee while riding for Leicester at Swindon the previous night. Chris 'Bomber'
Harris was our guest but was beaten by Sam Masters after a couple of close laps in heat 1. Josh Pickering passed
Jan on the second lap of heat 2 but Georgie held off Mitchell Davey for a shared heat. Ricky Wells sped away to win heat 3
but Max Clegg was left trailing the field and unable to pass Todd. Kyle touched the tapes and goes off 15m in heat 4.
Erik Riss and Mitchell took a 5-1 with Georgie falling on the second turn and the Monarchs lead by 6 points.
A series of shared heats follows. Ricky beats Chris and Todd. Kyle beats Sam and Theo. Erik beats Kyle and Josh, Todd wins from Theo and Mitchell and then Kyle wins from Ricky and Max. Sam leads away in heat 10 but splutters to a halt at the end of the first lap. Josh Bates wins from Theo and Jan to trim the Monarchs lead back to four points.
The race of the night follows as Todd gates and is team rode by Bomber with Erik climbing all over the pair of them. That levels the scores! Tigers lead from the gate in heat 12 and although Ricky picks off Jan at the end of the first lap he cannot get past Josh and the Tigers lead with three races remaining. Erik and Sam look set to redress the balance but Chris passes Sam on the third turn. Sam tries to cut back but virtually stops and Kyle cannot avoid him. Tigers take maximum points from the rerun. JoshB wins heat 14 from the ever pushing JoshP and Jan beats Max to extend the Tigers lead. Chris and Kyle are untroubled ahead of Ricky and Erik to send the Tigers-on-tour contingent delerious with an enexpected massive 12 point away win!
