Former world champion Jason Doyle has penned a two-year deal with Vastervik in the Swedish Elitserien.

The move sees the Aussie swap clubs with triple world champion Nicki Pedersen, after the Dane moved to his former side Rospiggarna.

Doyle joins forces with the likes of compatriot Jack Holder, Polish shooting star Bartosz Smektala and Krzysztof Buczkowski.

After I left Rospiggarna, the goal is to race in the play-offs again and to be on the track when the gold medals are being handed out.

After falling short of the play-offs in Hallstavik this year, he’s keen to get back into title contention with the coastal club.

He told the Vastervik website: "I am really happy to have signed for Vastervik Speedway for 2020 and 2021.

“I look forward to the challenge and to working with Morgan Andersson, Vastervik Speedway and my new team mates.

“The team looks very promising on paper and I will do everything I can to contribute to the success the club is working towards.

“After I left Rospiggarna, the goal is to race in the play-offs again and to be on the track when the gold medals are being handed out.

“I personally want to thank everyone at Vastervik Speedway for the opportunity to race for such a well respected club in Sweden.”

Elsewhere, Danish star Niels-Kristian Iversen has made a return to Swedish champions Smederna after a year away at Piraterna.

Iversen won the Elitserien crown with the Smederna side and looks forward to making his comeback as they chase a fourth crown on the spin.

He said: “I’m really happy to be back in Smederna again. I enjoyed my time there in 2018 and I am looking forward to be a part of the team again in 2020.”

Meanwhile, new European champion Mikkel Michelsen has followed Iversen out of Motala and will line up for Indianerna in 2020. The SGP reserve joins the likes of Chris Holder and Kenneth Bjerre in Kumla.

He said: “I had a number of options for 2020, but after I had several conversations with (Indians boss) Peter Johansson, it weighed more and more in favour of Kumla.

“I think the club handled the negotiations in a professional way and I like what has happened to the club in recent years. It seems like an association that has control over both its economy and organisation, which creates good conditions for us riders.

“The year 2019 was my best so far and I really want to keep the high level I have built up. Then of course reaching the GP Challenge and earning a place in the 2021 Grand Prix series are big goals.”

Polish star Tobiasz Musielak has signed for Lejonen and former Aussie champion Rohan Tungate has made the move to Masarna.
