STAR winter signing Chris Holder has revealed how he almost joined King’s Lynn a decade ago.

Holder finally gets to take his place in the Trucks R Us Stars side this year after making the winter switch from Poole.

Holder, world champion in 2012, is relishing the prospect of racing every week at the Adrian Flux Arena.

“I’m really excited about the whole thing,” he added. “With the Poole thing not working out, it’s good to get an opportunity to keep racing in England.

“I think the fresh start could be pretty good for me. Obviously the new rules went against me at Poole, but I’m looking forward to riding for King’s Lynn and want to make sure it’s a good year.

“King’s Lynn is a place where I’ve done pretty well before, and I came quite close to signing for them in the Premier League in 2007.

“It’s a bit delayed but it’s nice to finally get a chance to race there, and I’m looking forward to the challenge.

“You always want to be riding for a club that can be competing at the top, so hopefully we can be in the running for the title.

“King’s Lynn have been there or thereabouts the last few years, but they’ve always had a lot of injuries so hopefully we can have some more luck this year.

“With the team that’s being talked about, we should have a strong side on paper so if we can transfer that onto the track we should do well.”

Holder and his new team mates will go through their paces at the track on Wednesday when they stage their press and practice session at the Adrian Flux Arena.

They launch their SGB Premiership campaign against newly promoted Somerset at home next Wednesday, April 5.

Meanwhile, the Young Stars head to Birmingham on Wednesday night to face Cradley in their opening National League meeting of the season (7.30).

Luke Priest has been named as guest to replace Josh Bailey.
