Aussie star Jordan Stewart admits racing with compatriots Jason Doyle and Troy Batchelor will be an education as he prepares for his SGB Premiership debut with Swindon in 2020.

The 2019 Aussie Under-21 international joins 2017 world champion Doyle and former SGP star Batchelor at Blunsdon, alongside Rasmus Jensen, Ellis Perks and fellow new recruit Anders Rowe.

Stewart hopes racing with two of Australia’s finest can help him take his career to the next level.

Having riders like Jason and Troy in the same side will be awesome next season. I can learn so much off these guys in what they do, how they prepare bikes and manage their time around meetings.

He said: “Having riders like Jason and Troy in the same side will be awesome next season. I can learn so much off these guys in what they do, how they prepare bikes and manage their time around meetings.

“This is the level I want to be at so I’m really looking forward to getting going at Swindon.”

Stewart has spent his first two British seasons with Redcar and believes now is the time to step up into the top flight.

“Signing for Swindon is huge for my career,” he said. “This will be my third straight season in England and I feel as though I’ve been ready for this opportunity for a while. I held talks with a couple of clubs last season but nothing came of it for one reason or another.

“My form with Redcar was decent last season. Being on the bike as often as I can is what I need to improve so hopefully doubling up with Swindon will only help bring me on.”

Stewart knows Robins’ SGB Premiership title triumph this year will ramp up the pressure on his side.

He said: “Winning the league last season will mean everyone will be after us next season, but that added pressure will only spur me on to score points. I’ve heard a lot about Rosco (team manager Alun Rossiter) and I can’t wait to start working with him."

Elsewhere, Sheffield have added Ashley Morris to their side, while King’s Lynn have recruited Danish rider Thomas Jorgensen.
