Lewis Rose

Born in Reading in 1989, Lewis Rose was a latecomer to Speedway, initially riding motocross before working his way through the Young Stars system at parent club King’s Lynn. In 2014 after just one season in Speedway, Rose was given a reserve place in the Elite League side of King’s Lynn. He also joined the Newcastle Diamonds in the Premier League who he still currently rides for. Ahead of the 2015 reserve draft, King’s Lynn was keen to keep Rose as well as his reserve partner of 2014 Lewis Kerr. However they were only allowed to protect one of their riders, and they selected Kerr. Rose then made the move to the Swindon Robins for the 2015 season where he will double up in the Premier League with the Newcastle Diamonds.

The 2016 season saw Rose compete for both King’s Lynn Stars in the Elite League and with Newcastle Diamonds in the Premier League where he would have solid seasons with both clubs and increasing his starting average in both leagues. The Diamonds reached the end of season play-offs and narrowly missed out on silverware whilst Rose beat more established world riders with King’s Lynn.

His progression on the shale in 2016 has been rewarded with him again back with both clubs and the chance to again establish himself further up the speedway ladder.

The 2017 season would see Rose progress again with him qualifying for his first British Final appearance. He would again ride for both Newcastle and King’s Lynn Stars improving his average for both sides.
