Kim completes Hammers line up

The Vortex Hammers are pleased to confirm that Club asset and Swedish international Kim Nilsson will complete their line up for 2015.

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

The Hammers Co Promoter Jon Cook commented: “We’re delighted to welcome Kim (Nilsson) 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 Cook said: “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.”
