NEWS: Venson operation a success

Leicester’s Cycle Speedway legend, Norman Venson (pictured left), is doing well after a hip operation yesterday.

The multiple British and World finalist underwent hip replacement surgery yesterday, which has obviously put his Cycle Speedway career on hold.

The surgery went well and he’s already been back on his feet. The former Whitley rider is due some physio today to get him onto crutches. I’m sure everyone in the sport will wish Norm well. Leicester and Coventry – the latter where he gives his valuable experience and advice to the Hearsall Common youngsters – have already sent in their well wishes to the popular veteran.

Get well soon Norm, on behalf of the 33/18 News team!
