BREXIT FOR NICOLAI
unfortunately as many people know, i wont be lining up for @ipswichspeedway this season. something i was really looking forward to. for those who don’t understand the reasons behind my decision, you can read why, on my facebook page.
BREXIT FOR NICOLAIThe plan for the 2020 season was for Nicolai to line up for Ipswich Witches, but due to Covid-19 the British season was postponed until 2021. Everything was in place for a Ipswich return when the British Premiership would start on the 17th of May, but unfortunately it will now be without Nicolai in the Ipswich line-up. “I don’t feel like I need to explain myself in regards to my decision of not to be riding in Britain this season, but because some people think it’s down to other reasons than the travel issues, I want to let people know that what was written in the Ipswich Press Release is the truth and the Ipswich management and myself have had many conversations about the situation. I want to ride in the British League, but I don’t want to at all costs. Due to Covid I’m staying in Poland as well as Denmark, because I ride in those countries and that, under the current circumstances, makes it very difficult to travel. Obviously there are flights available, but at a cost and often not at the times needed – mainly early hours of the morning or not to or from the most convenient airport. I’ve been working closely together with my sponsor ATPI, trying to find the best solution for flights in and out of Denmark and Poland, with some costing up to £450. I would also need to pay for Covid-19 tests. To do a meeting in England I would need a minimum of 4 or 5 tests, with the two allowing me to fly to Denmark, costing £190. On top of the flights and the tests, there is hotels, car rental, mechanic wages, fuel, wear on equipment etc. When I travelled over for my daughters birthday in the end of April, it cost me over £800 in flights, car rental, fuel and Covid-19 tests. As I said previously, I was really looking forward to race for Ipswich and in the UK, but I don’t want to be unreliable and have unnecessary stress which can affect my racing. My main focus is after all to qualify to the Grand Prix’s in 2022 and for that I need financial security and a clear mind. I wish Ipswich all the best for 2021, they have got a very good replacement in Jake and I hope to be back in 2022.” ... See MoreSee Less
