Danish racer Hans Andersen has parted ways with champions Region Varde after admitting he didn’t want to share the club’s A-rider spot.

The former FIM Speedway Grand Prix star led the Outrup team to Danish Speedway League championship glory this year, but the club has admitted it’s looking to increase competition by bringing in a second A rider.

With Andersen keen to race every meeting, he admits he will be looking elsewhere in his homeland for 2019.

He told JV.dk: “In my experience, it doesn’t work very well. When I was at Munkebo, we also had Kenni Larsen as A-rider, so they always had to choose between us. It was never really good.”

The rider insists there are no hard feelings as he departs. He added: "The co-operation has worked fine if you ask me. I feel that I've contributed everything I can. And we've created great results together.”

Andersen is hopeful of finding a new Danish side. He said: "There's some work to do, but I'm optimistic. You'll see me again in one of the Jutland clubs.”

Region Varde boss Steven Andersen admits the club is now on the hunt for two A riders and insists the rider departed on good terms.

He said: "We are working on the case, but we are not yet there where we can say something concrete. It is true that we would like two Danish A riders, but we must see what happens. The goal is, at least, to create more competition in the A position.

“We have had a wish to keep Hans Andersen, but we could not agree, but there are no hard feelings, so it's just in between.”
