King’s Lynn Stars No.1 Niels-Kristian Iversen will not be riding for the team in the 2016 Elite League season.
The Grand Prix rider is determined to push his search for world title glory and has reluctantly decided to pull the plug on his British speedway involvement.
Stars team boss Rob Lyon told the klstars.co.uk website: “I know it was a tough decision for him. However, he has made it clear that should we suffer any injuries or similar problems we can go to him for help.
“It wasn’t an easy decision for Niels, but he felt something had to give. I’m sure it’s not the last time we’ll see Niels in Stars colours.”
