Swindon star Adam Ellis admitted “I couldn’t see myself riding anywhere else” after completing the Robins 2020 line-up.

The Great Britain racer joins 2017 world champion Jason Doyle, Troy Batchelor, Rasmus Jensen, Jordan Stewart, Ellis Perks and Anders Rowe in the Swindon side, which sees five of their 2019 SGB Premiership title winners return to Blunsdon.

Ellis has been a fixture in Robins red since making the switch from near neighbours Poole in 2017.

I wasn’t planning on going anywhere else. I wanted to stay at Swindon from the word go.

And he insists he had little interest in looking for a team place away from the Abbey Stadium. He said: “I wasn’t planning on going anywhere else. I wanted to stay at Swindon from the word go.

“We had to wait until the AGM, but it was an easy call to return. There was no umming or ahing about the situation or second thoughts. I couldn’t see myself riding anywhere else to be honest. It’s great to be back.”

Ellis has long been tipped as one of British speedway’s brightest prospects, but insists he will progress at his own pace.

He said: “I had a terrible first season at Swindon, but I feel I’m getting better step by step. As long as I improve each year, that’s okay and it doesn’t matter. I’m still only 23. I feel like I’ve still got time to make a mark in the speedway world.

“I want to do better than this season – it doesn’t take much for things to go right. It can be one piece that’s missing, and that piece can turn your fortunes. Look at Rasmus (Jensen); he came from nowhere and is now one of the best rated riders around. I’m not setting too many targets. I’m just going out to enjoy myself.”
