After sitting out the 2015 speedway season I knew I would be a bit race-rusty at the start of 2016.  I am grateful to Belle Vue for giving me the opportunity to ride for them at the excellent new National Speedway Stadium and get straight back into speedway riding in the top flight.  I struggled a bit at first but was pleased the management put their faith in me and when I found my set-up I scored well for Aces in the second half of the season, and finished the season strongly, particularly at home.

I made no secret that I was looking for a Premier League place too and to put myself in the shop window, and improve my sharpness, I was pleased to accept a one month contract with Isle of Wight in the 3rd tier.  I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and scored some big points home and away.  At the end of this period Ipswich Witches had a reshuffle and signed me to fill a reserve place.  I increased my Premier League average at Ipswich and had some good meetings, helping Ipswich to move up into the play-off places.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my sponsors and fans for their help and support through the 2016 speedway season.  It is your support that makes it possible for me to be a speedway rider and race competitively.  I’m already preparing for next year, have new bikes and my engines are being worked on, so I’ll be all ready to go in March!
