World Championship leader Tai Woffinden is looking for a new Swedish club after leaving bottom-of-the-table Masarna by mutual consent.

The Brit, who lines up in Saturday’s Adrian Flux British SGP in Cardiff, sat out the club’s fixture with Rospiggarna on July 3, citing a number of unpaid invoices as his reason.

But the British ace Woffinden has paid tribute to the club after a superb 18-month spell in Avesta. “We’ve agreed the time is right to move on,” he said.

“I can only say good things about the people and the fans in general, we’ve had a great time together but nothing is forever.

“I’ve enjoyed my time riding for them and always gave my best and I wish everyone at the club every success in the future. I have a lot of friends there.

“But we have agreed it’s the right moment both for the club and for myself to move on and take on a new challenge.

“I would like to thank everyone for the welcome they have given me at Masarna and look forward to catching up with everyone again soon.”

Read more from Woffinden as he looks ahead to Cardiff tomorrow morning.
