Bees buzz to victory! 

Coventry beat Swindon Robins in Elite League Pairs final

Swindon Speedway's Leigh Adams and Mads Korneliussen were pipped at the post by Coventry Bees last night, in the final of the 2008 Elite League Pairs Championship at Abbey Stadium.

Robins' skipper Adams, fresh from victory in the Scandinavian GP, was in sublime form as he romped to four successive victories, whilst Korneliussen provided fantastic support - contributing a hard-earned ten points from his qualifying rides.
 
The final
 
It was the lively Korneliussen who conjured a lightning get-away from gate three in the final, hitting the front.

Riding the race of his life to repel the challenge of a hard charging Chris Harris, Mads rode with composure to fend off Harris, who drew alongside him on turn one of lap two but didnít phase the Robins rider.

At the rear, Leigh Adams threw everything at Hans Andersen and it looked as if a third lap back straight cut back might just propel Adams past his rival.
 
But it wasnít to be, and despite all Adamsí efforts Coventryís second and third place finish secured them overall victory on the night.
