NKI'S NZ SPUR

Double Danish champion Niels-Kristian Iversen hopes his Western Springs woe will spur him back to his best.

Double Danish champion Niels-Kristian Iversen hopes his Western Springs woe will spur him back to his best form after he left the New Zealand SGP with six points on Saturday.

Despite winning race three, NKI’s night quickly went south as he struggled to make an impression in the land of the long white cloud.

Iversen didn’t reach a final until round five last season when he claimed World Championship bronze.

Sometimes when you get a knock at the beginning, you tend to work a bit harder, try a bit more and I’m definitely going to try and turn it around into something positive.

But he is determined to get up to speed much more quickly this season and is keen to ensure his New Zealand nightmare serves as nothing more than a kick up the backside.

He said: “I never really managed to find the speed. I won my first heat but I still wasn’t happy. I just never managed to do anything.

“It was just one of those meetings I need to forget and move on from. I know I can do better.

“There are still 11 rounds and it’s just one meeting out of the way. It wasn’t a good one and it wasn’t the start I was looking for.

“But sometimes when you get a knock at the beginning, you tend to work a bit harder, try a bit more and I’m definitely going to try and turn it around into something positive. I won’t let it bring me down.

“I know my bike is as it should be. I just didn’t manage to use it properly. That’s the bottom line. I managed to win one race in Auckland this year and I didn’t have a win last season, so that’s one positive. It was just one of those days.”
