Eagles pair at the max in big win

The Argus: Mikkel Michelsen was in great form tonight Mikkel Michelsen was in great form tonight

Two riders completed five-ride paid maximums as Eastbourne started their Elite League season in style.

Cameron Woodward and Mikkel Michelsen remained unbeaten in the 62-30 home win over Birmingham Brummies.

They shared their team’s sixth 5-1 of the night in heat 15 to round things off in style.

Michelsen, tipped for big things this term, took the chequered flag four times.

But his best ride was arguably that which saw him come home in support of Joonas Kylmakorpi after diving inside Adam Skornicki and Ben Barker.

Bjarne Pedersen and Timo Lahti both had double-figure pay days.

And Lewis Blackbird and Danny Halsey chipped in on their top-flight debuts, notably with a 5-1 in the second reserves race.

Eagles: Michelsen 14+1 (5), Woodward 12+3 (5), Pedersen 10+1 (4), Lahti 9+1 (4), Blackbird 7 (4), Halsey 5+2 (4), Kylmakorpi 5 (4).

Birmingham: Skornicki 7 (4), King 7^ (4), Nermark 7 (5), Barker 3+1^ (5), Morley 3 (4), Tungate 2 (4), Compton 1+1 (4).
