ROBERT Miskowiak apologised to Niels Kristian Iversen, the Peterborough rider, last night after nearly crashing into him in heat nine of last night's Elite League clash at Alwalton.

Miskowiak and Iversen were dicing in a thrilling heat in the wet when Miskowiak swerved into the path of Iversen down the home straight as he made an attempt to pass up the inside of him.

“The weather was so bad and the shale on my goggles so heavy I just couldn't see,” Miskowiak said.

“I went from outside to inside so quickly as I tried to get some vision and I know I nearly took Niels out.

“I am very sorry for that. It could have been very nasty and I have apologised to him.”

Meanwhile, Ipswich promoter John Louis was full of praise for both sides in the difficult conditions last night.

“Both Mike Smillie and I want to thank all the riders for their efforts in conditions that could have seen the meeting called off at any time,” he said.

“For us, it was a really good effort and everyone did their bit and had good rides.

“Chris Louis was in the wrong place at the wrong time on two occasions after great starts and our guest, Simon Stead, after bike problems in his first race, was excellent for us.

“So too were all the team. They all battled well.”

Kim Jansson commented: “Perhaps the meeting shouldn't have been on, but it was and I thought we did quite well considering.”

Peterborough's Danny King, who is off to Croatia this weekend in an world under-21 championship qualifer said: “It was very difficult out there, but everyone rode sensibly and we did well to get to heat 12.”

Panthers' skipper Hans Andersen said: “If we could have rode here, we could have rode at Ipswich on Monday. The conditions here were much worse, although I understand time was an issue at Ipswich.”
