BUXTON Hitmen rider Robert Branford is to miss the remainder of the season through injury.

The team’s number one rider will undergo surgery later this week to repair a torn cruciate ligament, following a four-rider pile-up at Berwick on Saturday.

A Hitmen spokesperson said: “We wish Robert a good recovery and send him our best wishes.”

The announcement is yet further bad news for the Buxton club, having already lost Charles Wright for their remaining home meetings after he signed for Premier League club Glasgow, who race on Sundays.
