BROC WANTS 2021 SPOT

Saturday August 08, 2020
WOLVERHAMPTON racer Broc Nicol is keeping his fingers crossed he can finally realise his dream of racing for the club next season.

Nicol, son of former Middlesbrough man Doug, quickly agreed a switch to Monmore in the winter before seeing the season scrapped due to the pandemic.

And he’s revealed how he is hoping for confirmation soon that clubs can keep the same line-up for 2021 if they so desire.

“I hope it’s all agreed pretty soon that I can be back with those clubs next year and make it all happen,” he said.

“I have a big season in mind with some pretty big things I want to achieve if all goes to plan and they will just be the next steps to getting me towards where I ultimately want to be.”

American ace Nicol made the trip back to the UK last week to begin quarantine ahead of travelling to Croatia for the Grand Prix Challenge and is based at Hagon Shocks in the south, one of his major backers.

He said: “I’m currently keeping myself to myself at the back of Hagon Shocks; they’ve got everything prepared for me, I’m on the spin bike a few times a day to keep my fitness going and I’ll be ready for next season when it comes.

“For now though it’s all about the GP Challenge in what is another great opportunity for me at this stage of my career.”

The Challenge takes place on August 22 with three places for the 2021 series up for grabs and Great Britain are represented by former Birmingham man Adam Ellis.

Club assets Freddie Lindgren and Tai Woffinden are gearing up for the new GP season which starts in Wroclaw, Poland on August 28.

Eight rounds will take place over four weekends with back-to-back rounds on Friday and Saturday.
