The “BP Mitchell” Rockets have been hit by the news that Edward Kennett has suffered a broken arm competing in his World Longtrack Semi-Final in the Czech Republic today.

The former World Cup Lion, who was in resurgent form for the Rockets in Bank Holiday Monday’s televised victory over King’s Lynn, has suffered a double fracture. His arm is now in a cast, with a view to an operation when he is back in Britain.

Further details in terms of a likely absence will be published when known, but we obviously wish Edward the speediest of recoveries.

In the meantime, the Rockets will be reviewing rider coverage options in the knowledge that their next SGB Premiership fixture is away at Swindon on June 14th.
