King’s Lynn Stars number one speedway rider Niels-Kristian Iversen yesterday was back on a bike for the first time in nearly six months after injury.
The Dane missed the end of last season due to a knee problem and was sorely missed by the Stars, whose 2014 Elite League title charge faltered in the closing weeks of the campaign.
However, Iversen had some laps around the Adrian Flux Arena track, and revealed: “It was wet, but it was good just to do some laps - that was the main thing.”
In December Iversen was confirmed as returning to the Adrian Flux Arena for the fifth season in a row and rejoins a settled Lynn side who will be aiming for their first-ever Elite League title during their 50th anniversary year.
