Rider Jon Armstrong Rides With Broken Foot

Mildenhall Fen Tigers number one Jon Armstrong went against doctor's orders and Sunday rode with a
broken metatarsal in the game against Buxton Hitmen. 
Armstrong suffered the injury when he caught his right foot in his footplate last Sunday during the club's 53-39 win over the Ken Kings. 
He was told by doctors he would have to rest for four to six weeks to allow the injury to heal, but the 38 year old Brit is determined to play through the pain and take his place at the head of the Fen Tigers team.
"I have already missed one meeting this season and that is more than enough," said the motor bike rider. "At the end of the day it is a pay day for me and I don't want to be missing out on more track time.
"I have been resting it up and putting plenty of ice on it, so hopefully I will be able to make the start in heat one and limp through the meeting."
The Oldham-based rider picked up the injury at the end of heat 13 and to the surprise of Fen Tigers fans, he reappeared in heat 15. For Armstrong however, participating in that race was never a question.
"In heat 13 Steve Boxall was pretty ruthless in checking me," said Armstrong. "The move was a bit over the top and I wanted to go out in heat 15 and beat him, unfortunately that was not to happen."
