ROSCO REMAINS IN GB HOTSEAT

Swindon chief Alun Rossiter will remain in charge of Great Britain for the 2017 Monster Energy FIM Speedway World Cup.

Swindon chief Alun Rossiter will remain in charge of Great Britain for the 2017 Monster Energy FIM Speedway World Cup, the BSPA has confirmed.

Rossiter, who led the team to a silver medal at the Final in Manchester last summer, will be at the helm for a fourth successive season.

He is already planning pre-season training for the riders and members of the under-21 contingent, with GB launching their Monster Energy SWC campaign in Event 1 at King’s Lynn against Australia, USA and the Czech Republic on July 1.

I’m proud and honoured to be appointed for a fourth season and I would like to thank the promoters for putting their faith in me once again.

Rosco is delighted to have retained the national team job and hopes to lead the Lions to a place at the Monster Energy SWC Race Off as they prepare to race without double world champion and 2016 skipper Tai Woffinden.

He said: “I’m proud and honoured to be appointed for a fourth season and I would like to thank the promoters for putting their faith in me once again. I’m very pleased to get confirmation of this and I will be doing everything I can to help make us a success.

“I certainly think we can make the Race Off in Poland. It’s nice to be back at King’s Lynn, although the silver medal we won at Belle Vue last summer was a very special moment.”

Rossiter hopes the absence of Woffinden will encourage others to step up and battle for their place in the GB side.

“Without Tai we have to move on,” he said. “We will have a group of riders who want to wear the race jacket with pride and it will be a true team effort, just like it was at Belle Vue. It gives somebody else the chance to step forward and represent their country."
