RICHARD Hall is ready to hit the ground running when the new Tigers season starts next month.
Hall, an Owlerton track specialist, has been back on a bike in recent weeks with an impressive display in Somerset’s Winter Cracker meeting and he’s also put some laps in at Leicester.
Now he can’t wait for the new campaign to start against Birmingham in an inter-league challenge at Owlerton on March 28.
He said: “Preparations are going well; I can’t wait for the new season to start. I’m delighted to be back at Sheffield because it’s my favourite track. I’m ready for the new season and I’m confident of having a good one.
“I had a good meeting at Somerset. I just need to get some more track time in before the first match.
“It’s going to be a tough start against Birmingham but I’m really looking forward to it and I know what a tough test it will be for the boys. It’s nice to be racing against an Elite League club to start the season although it will be tough.”
