Leicester Lions land Ipswich Witches rider Lasse Bjerre


Leicester Lions have signed Danish youngster Lasse Bjerre and announced the return of skipper Kauko Nieminen.

Bjerre, who impressed at Beaumont Park for Ipswich last season, will start as the new number one in a heat-leader trio with Nieminen and Magnus Karlsson.

"After a good year, I look forward to riding for Leicester," he said. "I have always been impressed by the track conditions, facilities and people.

"It will be nice to ride there in every home match."
