TOBIASZ Musielak has set his sights on more success with Swindon Robins after being unveiled as the first name on the team’s roster for 2018.

Rule changes brought in earlier this month ahead of next season meant the club reluctantly announced that captain and reigning world champion Jason Doyle would not be returning for the coming campaign.

However, team boss Alun Rossiter has acted swiftly to try to off-set that by signing up fans’ favourite Musielak.

Polish ace Musielak joined the Robins three months into the 2017 campaign and helped turn the team’s fortunes around, culminating in their memorable SGB Premiership title triumph.

Four members of that victorious squad – Musielak, David Bellego, Adam Ellis and Zach Wajtknecht –signed deals as full-time club assets during the course of the year but the 24-year-old former Wolverhampton Wolves rider is the first to agree to ride for Swindon again in 2018.

Musielak proved an instant hit for the Robins, finishing the season with an average of 7.37, and admitted it did not take long to decide to turn out again for Rossiter’s side.

“I’m really pleased to be coming back, I think it is the best decision for me,” said Musielak.

“I had a good time with Swindon last season and the team did an amazing job by winning the league.

“Hopefully we can have some more success next season.

“When I spoke to the people at Swindon, they were 100 per cent keen for me to come back and it is good to have that support.

“I enjoyed racing there and I enjoyed racing in England again, so it was an easy decision to come back.

“The fans were really behind me ever since I joined the team and that always gives you a good feeling.

“We had a lot of good riders last season and I think there are plans to have another good team so we can try to have another strong season.”

Musielak is the first of seven names to be confirmed in Swindon’s 2018 side but with discussions under way with other members of this year’s title-winning team, Rossiter does not think it will be long before the full line-up is in place.

Rossiter said: “It’s a good start by signing up Toby again. He came over midway through the season and did a great job and the fans took to him straight away. He is our asset too, so it made sense to sign him up again.

“We are not a million miles away from naming the team. We are just trying to get one or two things more over the line.”
