IVERSEN OPEN TO UK RETURN
DISAPPOINTED Danish star Niels-Kristian Iversen admits he could be tempted by a return to British racing after missing out on an FIM Speedway Grand Prix wildcard.
Former King’s Lynn favourite Iversen, who has won six straight Danish Championships, was a high-profile casualty when the wildcards were named last week after a shoulder injury suffered in August ended his top eight hopes.
It means the Esbjerg flyer will be absent from the World Championship stage for the first time since 2010, although he has been handed the first reserve slot.
Iversen ended a six-season stint with the Stars to give British racing a miss last season but says a return to the SGB Premiership could be on the cards - at the Adrian Flux Arena or elsewhere.
“I would definitely be open to it,” Iversen said when asked if his Grand Prix omission could open the door to a return to British speedway.
“There are a lot of things that have to happen first and a few things that have to fall into place with the rules and regulations and stuff like that.
“But I’ll definitely look into coming back to the UK now I don’t have that commitment of the GPs, and we’ll see what happens over the winter.
“I had a good time at King’s Lynn.
“At the moment I can’t say anything about where I could end up because they haven’t been any developments at all yet.
“There’s a lot that could happen between now and the start of the season, but as I’ve said before I’ve always enjoyed riding in Britain and I’d always consider coming back if it fits in with everything else.”
Iversen took to social media to blast the decision to omit him from next year’s FIM Speedway Grand Prix line-up.
And after having a few more days to reflect, he admits it is a “hard pill to swallow.”
“As I said on the day on social media, I think it’s the wrong decision,” Iversen said.
“It’s frustrating because I had an injury and there’s just been nothing I could do.
“I feel like I’ve shown I’m one of the best 15 riders in the world, so It’s a hard pill to swallow but I just have to get on with it.
“Everyone wants to be racing in the GPs, so it’s disappointing I won’t be involved next year, but I just have to focus on my league racing and have the best year I can.
“I’m first reserve as well which is better than nothing I guess, so I’ll just try and show they made a mistake not giving me a wildcard if or when I get a chance.”

Kicked in the teeth about not being selected for a permanent place in the SGP 2018. Statistics proves that I belong in top 15 in the world and that spot has been taken away from me. To me, that goes to show that the sport aspect of the game takes 2nd priority. Got selected as first reserve which is better than nothing, and I will be prepared if I get the chance. Good luck to all the boys in the 2018 lineup. ... See MoreSee Less

INJURED IVERSEN VOWS TO COME BACK STRONGER
Danish Grand Prix star Niels-Kristian Iversen is determined to come back stronger following his recent injury. Iversen crashed in a Polish League meeting on Sunday damaging his shoulder and ribs and will miss this weekend's Polish Grand Prix in Gorzow his home track.
He admits he is gutted about the injury after his form had started to pick up.
He added: "There is never a good time to get injured but I felt in the past couple of weeks I was starting to turn my season around. Winning the Danish title gave me a big boost and I felt on the pace in the last couple of GPs.
"Not being able to compete in the Gorzow GP is a blow to me and my sponsors as I felt I could have made up more ground on the top eight in the series.
"I'm not sure on how long I will be out but the aim is to get myself fit and come back stronger. I want to thank everyone for the well wishes and the Gorzow fans - it means a lot. Also the hospital staff have done a great job looking after me over the past few days."
