ALL-ACTION Rasmus Jensen has this morning been confirmed as Alun Rossiter’s third signing to Swindon Robins’ 2020 squad that will bid to defend the SGB Premiership and Supporters’ Cup titles.

Fans’ favourite Jensen, who last month scooped the prestigious Swindon Advertiser Robins Rider of the Year award, was – in the eyes of many – a key reason why the Abbey Stadium outfit wrote club history by securing the top tier’s two major honours in the same season for the first time ever.

Despite officially joining the club on a 4.51 average at the end of May, he ended Swindon’s latest campaign with a greensheet average of 7.86 after winning 38 of his 87 Premiership rides.

The Dane had actually been a target of Rossiter’s for several seasons prior to his first meeting in Robins colours during the 2019 season.

And it’s perhaps a good job ex-Robin Dawid Lampart was pulled from Swindon by Ekstraliga giants Lublin as that move ultimately opened the door for Jensen’s arrival.

“I can’t say a bad thing about the club. My decision to return was easy – Swindon has a good track, good track staff, great management and the team was good,” said Jensen.

“Myself, Jason (Doyle) and Troy (Batchelor) work well together. It’s a good mix, and we get on well outside the track too.

“Everything looks good, and from what I understand, the plans are looking good also.

“I want to improve. I’m a big believer that if you’re not aiming for the Grand Prix series then why are you racing speedway?

“I hope next year my starts will improve – no more coming from the back!”

One clash already high on the 26-year-old’s list next season is Sheffield Tigers’ visit to the Abbey.

Last week, Tigers’ co-promoter Damien Bates confirmed triple world champion Nicki Pedersen as his second signing.

The news took Jensen by surprise, although he confessed to hearing a rumour or two in the build-up to the signing’s confirmation.

Jensen added: “I had an idea Nicki (Pedersen) wanted to return, so I was prepared for it.

“I still chose not to believe it until I saw it on social media. Everyone thought Nicki’s days were over, and he didn’t sound too keen on coming back to England when I spoke to him previously.

“A good deal must’ve changed his mind.”
