Speedway

Leicester Lions have signed Danish racer Simon Nielsen to complete their line-up for 2012.

The 21-year-old first appeared in the UK when he joined Workington towards the end of last season.

Team boss Jason Attwood said: "I first saw Simon ride last season in practice at Scunthorpe and was impressed with what I saw.

"He's a good friend of Lasse Bjerre and he gained an insight of what Premier League racing was about at Workington."

Attwood added: "Towards the end of last season, he moved into one of the reserve berths in the Workington team and scored double points.

"I see Simon improving on his 3.76 average and believe that we have people in the team to help him develop both on and off the track."
