Nilsson back with Lakeside for 2015

The Vortex Lakeside Hammers have confirmed that club asset and Swedish international Kim Nilsson will complete their line-up for the 2015 Elite League season.

Nilsson returned to the team midway through last season as the club started to look to the future, with the rider enjoying his best year to date and breaking through into the Swedish World Cup team.

Hammers co-promoter Jon Cook said: “We’re delighted to welcome Kim back and feel that this is going to be a big year for him here in the UK under the wing of fellow countryman Andreas Jonsson.

“It’s important for the club to develop our own assets and Kim’s return last year was part of that plan.”

Looking ahead to the new season Cook added: “The clock is ticking down to a very exciting season. Our 1-7 is complete and approved by the BSPA, our fixtures are agreed and await official release and preparations at the track are beginning.

“Like our fans, we can’t wait for March 20th and the season opener, the Rico Spring Classic.”

The Vortex Hammers full 2015 line-up is: Andreas Jonsson; Mikkel Bech; Richard Lawson; Kim Nilsson; Edward Kennett; Ashley Birks FTR; Adam Ellis FTR.
