Hemsley's side have had a tough time in the Premier League this season

Leicester Lions promoter David Hemsley hopes Richard Sweetman's decision to take a break from the sport will not lead to a long absence.

Leicester have signed Henning Bager to replace Sweetman but Hemsley hopes the Australian will soon be back in action.

Hemsley said: "We have stood by Richard through what has been a difficult time and given him every opportunity to ride himself out of a poor spell.

"I hope Richard returns soon as he is a talented rider with a great future."
