SGP Rider Round-up catches up with the FIM Speedway Grand Prix stars to find out what they got up to during the off-season. Today, it’s Jason Doyle.

If 2016 was a life-changing season for the four-time SGP winner, 2017 has already started on a similar note.

On March 10, Doyley tied the knot with partner Emily at Bressingham Hall in Norfolk, and the Newcastle-born racer is delighted with married life.

Hopefully we will enjoy our lives together and I have a really good girl behind me who backs me all the way. If you find the right one, it’s easy.

Jason Doyle

“It’s a nice feeling,” he said. “Whoever says getting married is a silly idea has never done it our way. It’s the best money we’ve ever spent.

“We really enjoyed it and it’s not going to change anything. I’m still going to be racing and enjoying that. It’s just that Emily is now Mrs Doyle.

“Hopefully we will enjoy our lives together and I have a really good girl behind me who backs me all the way. If you find the right one, it’s easy.”

Watching any loved one race speedway can be a nerve-wracking experience as riders risk life and limb racing for points and prizes. Doyle admits Emily received a very early insight into how dangerous his job can be.

He said: “When I first rode speedway, she didn’t really know what it was. Then the first time she came, I broke my neck at Sheffield. So she got to see the bad side of speedway, but she also got to see the good side when she came to Stockholm and I won the GP there last year.

“It can go one way or the other with speedway, but she understands I’m not going to change it for anyone and she has to let me deal with it for a few more years. Hopefully she doesn’t read this!”

Doyle probably wouldn’t want Emily to read his 2017 schedule either as he prepares for another season racing for Zielona Gora in Poland, Swedish champions Rospiggarna and British club Swindon, as well as in the FIM Speedway Grand Prix series.

“A lot of people don’t realise how many days away we spend in a week,” he said. “I have been married for two weeks now and I have seen her for three days.

“During the season, I can be away for nearly three weeks at a time and that’s just doing Poland and Sweden and not coming back to Britain. It’s a hard life, but she has coped very well with it. That’s why we’re married.”

SpeedwayGP.com wishes the happy couple a great life together.
