Last updated : 29 January 2011 By Covsupport News Service
Coventry Bees duo Chris Harris and Rory Schlein have joined Belle Vue Aces for the 2011 Elite League Speedway season.

With the Bees league future currently uncertain and seemingly to played out in court, Harris the world number six and British Champion has opted to leave Brandon and head for Manchester along with Coventry resident Schlein who was dispatched to Peterborough during last season.

Speaking to the Belle Vue website, Harris who joined Coventry in 2004 after a spell at Kirkmanshulme said: "There had been a lot of rumours about me moving but nothing was happening because of the ban on transfers. I had got fed up with it all to the point of thinking I'd just ride in Europe and give Britain a miss.

"But I am English and I want to ride in England. I've always enjoyed coming to Belle Vue, I like the track and get on well with the management so this is a great move for me."
