Sam Happy At Home
They say loyalty in sport doesn't exist anymore but one rider that can't be labelled against is popular Australian Sam Masters. After missing out on the 2013 season with visa issues Masters has shown incredible loyalty to Edinburgh in British Speedway's second tier, before doubling-up with Premiership Wolverhampton in 2016, where he started a love affair with the Monmore faithful.
Masters had been scheduled to race for both in 2020 but Covid-19 ended those plans, and after spending a season living in Poland he is ready to come back to his spiritual homes in the UK.
Speaking on this weeks Talk Speedway Podcast Masters said, "I've already said to both Edinburgh and Wolverhampton to keep my contract the same for next season if they wanted. There's no reason why teams should want to change any riders. The riders signed up for a reason so I can't see why riders would want to change either.
"I'm ready to go for both Edinburgh and Wolverhampton 100%. I definitely miss turning up to those tracks every week. You don't realise what you've got until it's gone, and we didn't have it this year so I realise how much I enjoy racing in Britain for Edinburgh and Wolves."
Sam features on this weeks podcast and speaks about life in Poland, missing the UK and last weeks Peter Craven Memorial. Also featured on this weeks podcast is British Under-21 star Leon Flint and is available from 8am on Tuesday 27 October from all good podcast providers.
