Danish racer Rasmus Jensen extended his stay at Swindon for 2020, and promptly set his sights on chasing an FIM Speedway Grand Prix spot.

Jensen has made rapid progress in British speedway in recent times, winning the SGB Premiership title with Swindon this year and forming a potent top trio with 2017 world champion Jason Doyle and Troy Batchelor.

Why would you ride speedway if you didn’t aim to be in the Grand Prix?

The Holsted-born racer is keen to continue climbing the ladder and is determined to make it all the way to the sport’s biggest stage. He said: “Why would you ride speedway if you didn’t aim to be in the Grand Prix?”

Jensen isn’t short of confidence after a sublime season in the UK and is keen to take that winning habit into 2020.

“Obviously everybody is in it for the money because it is our job,” he said. “But it’s about racing. I never want to lose at anything; in card games, bowling, I still want to win. I’m not at speedway for the money, that’s not where my head is. Racing is to win.”

Jensen is enjoying life with the champions on and off the track.

He said: “I can’t say a bad thing about the club. My decision to return was easy – Swindon has a good track, good track staff, great management and the team was good last season also.

“Myself, Jason and Troy work well together; it’s a good mix. And we get on well outside the track too. Everything looks good, and from what I understand the plans are looking good also.

“I want to improve. I hope next year my starts will improve, though – no more coming from the back!”
