ALL at Coventry Speedway wish to pass on their sincere condolences to Olly Allen and his family after his mother Sarah passed away on Wednesday morning. Sarah was diagnosed with cancer last year, which was confirmed as incurable around two months ago.
Despite experiencing such difficult personal circumstances, Olly has always fulfilled his engagements for the Buildbase Bees, given 100 per cent throughout and improved as a rider to the extent that he achieved his goal for the season of reaching the Great Britain World Cup team - a goal he wanted to achieve for his mother.
The last meeting Sarah attended was the World Cup round at Brandon, and we know how proud she was of seeing Olly as part of the winning British team on the night.
We send our deepest sympathy to Olly, father Dave, brother Tommy and sisters Charlotte and Amy, and their families and friends.
Wednesday's win at Reading is dedicated to Sarah's memory, and we look forward to Olly's recovery from injury and seeing him back with us as soon as possible.
