Danish racer Niels-Kristian Iversen declared he’s coming “home” in the PGE Ekstraliga after completing his return to Gorzow for 2020.

The FIM Speedway Grand Prix regular has spent the past two seasons with Torun, but left following the club’s relegation to the First Division.

Gorzow were left short of top-end firepower last season following Martin Vaculik’s shock switch to Zielona Gora.

Iversen’s return considerably strengthens a side, which also features new world champion Bartosz Zmarzlik, former world No.2 Krzysztof Kasprzak, Szymon Wozniak and Anders Thomsen. The club has also recruited Danish prospect Marcus Birkemose with an eye on the future.

Speaking in a Facebook video, Iversen is delighted to be back with the club where he emerged as one of the sport’s top stars, winning World Championship bronze in 2013.

He said: “They say away is good, but home is better. I have decided to come back to winning ways – together with you, the supporters, the sponsors and everyone connected with Stal Gorzow.

“I’m coming back to fight for the highest goals next year. I can’t wait to see everybody again at the stadium in the spring.”
