HANS BACK ON A BIKE

Thursday May 07, 2020
PETERBOROUGH favourite Hans Andersen has been back on a bike for the first time in six months.

Andersen admits it was a ‘great feeling’ to get some laps in at his home Danish track, the famous Vojens Speedway Centre.

The Danish government drew up a list of regulations to enable practice to take place and Andersen took full advantage.

He said: “It was a great feeling for sure as this has been the longest period in my professional Speedway career without being on a bike - over six months.

“The opportunity arose after the government here in Denmark continued to slowly relax our lockdown restrictions.

“I was able to go to my 2020 Danish team track at Vojens and have a skid, but it didn’t happen without some pretty tough rules that were put in place.

“Only one rider and one mechanic were allowed to attend, riders were separated in the pits area by the social distancing measures in place and we had to change into our race suits in our vehicles.

“Additionally riders were not allowed to use the showers afterwards. Despite this it was very pleasing to be able to get sideways after such a lengthy lay off.”

Peterborough’s 2020 programme, which is proving popular with fans looking for reading material with so much time at home, has a fourth issue out on Monday.

It includes an insightful column from club owner Keith Chapman, an in-depth interview with Ulrich Ostergaard, Andersen has penned a column plus more columns from a host of top writers.

Issue 4 is available for £2.25 plus p&p to order now from curtis-sport.com and the previous three issues remain available to complete the set. The option to pay by cheque payable to Curtis Sport Ltd is also available with details on the website.
