Coventry Bees' meeting with Lakeside tonight (Monday) has been called off after the death of rider Lee Richardson.
The Hammer captain and former Bees team member was killed in a track crash in Poland yesterday.
The former world under-21 champion was just 33.
Coventry owner Mick Horton said: "We extend all our sympathies to Lee’s family and friends, and also everyone associated with Lakeside at this awful time. I feel it’s appropriate that Monday’s meeting is postponed, and it’s fully understandable that there are riders from Lakeside who would not be in the right frame of mind to race in these tragic circumstances.”
The Elite League meeting will be re-scheduled for a later date.
