Joel Andersson had a season of progress with the Staggs Bar Monarchs last season after a slow start, but he finished the season with a foot injury and missed the closing matches. He can't wait to get back to Armadale and was back on a bike recently.

"First of all my foot is absolutely fine now, I have no problems with that at all.

"I have spent the winter working for my sponsor full time which has helped me to buy a new engine from Tai Woffinden. I am currently building a bike up, changing the bearings and a few things.

"So I'm hoping that will be good for me. I've been training, making a couple of trips per week to the gym, and I feel fit and ready.

"I have been back on a bike because I went to Poland recently with the Swedish team to ride at Ostrow in a training session. I did sign for a Polish team, Rzeszow, but they have had problems which have been well publicised and they won't be racing this season.

"I'm not too bothered about that but I will be riding in Sweden for the Kumla Indians, and for Vargarna of Norkopping in the second league.

"I'm definitely ready and I am looking forward to being back at Armadale. I will see everyone at the Launch Show."
