Swindon boss Alun Rossiter insisted “there’s more to come” from Polish star Tobiasz Musielak as he sealed a return to Blunsdon for 2019.

The Pole played a key role in the club’s 2017 SGB Premiership title triumph and was voted Robins’ Rider of the Year this season.

Rossiter is backing him to build on his 6.52 average. He said: “I’m sure he can improve on that. Tobiasz is more and more settled in now. He has had a complete full season with us and I think there’s more to come.

I know how popular he is with the fans – we were a bit concerned because it seemed that whoever won Rider of the Year didn’t come back. It looked like a bit of a poisoned chalice, so it’s good to put a stop to that!

“He’s a rider who is easily motivated and he isn’t fazed by anybody, no matter who’s on the track, and he’s a nice guy to have around the pits.

“He was a bit quiet in the early days when he first joined us, but now he has found his feet at a club he likes, and I think we’ll get even more benefit out of that next year.

“I know how popular he is with the fans – we were a bit concerned because it seemed that whoever won Rider of the Year didn’t come back. It looked like a bit of a poisoned chalice, so it’s good to put a stop to that!

“But it speaks volumes when the crowd have their say and vote him as Rider of the Year. He’s good to have around the club and he’s so easy to deal with.

“Really I feel the only times he’s struggled have been when he’s gone back to Poland and been made to do sparring meetings with juniors who he shouldn’t have been racing with, which would mean he’d come back a bit despondent. But we picked him up to get him go back out and score big points, and nine times out of ten he delivered.”

Musielak joins 2017 world champion Jason Doyle at Blunsdon and Rossiter insists his team plans are progressing well.

He added: “We’re not far away now. There are just a couple of decisions to make in the middle where we’ve got to finalise which way we go, but things are all coming together.”
