TIGERS youngster Jordan Tyrer is on the comeback trail after recovering from a back injury.

Tyrer, the son of former Belle Vue man Paul, saw his 2012 season wiped out by a crash at Scunthorpe when he damaged vertebrae.

Now the Owlerton squad member is ready to return and he will travel to Poland next week to take part in a training camp - not only to start the season well but to continue his speedway education.

He will have four days training both on the track and in the workshop before returning to the UK to take up his role as Sheffield No.8. Tyrer said: “This training camp will be pretty full on and hard work. The first two days will be intensive on-track training and tuition with the last two days being focused more on competitive racing.

“There will also be workshop classes to help with the technical side and bike preparation as well as advice on health, nutrition and mental preparation.

“There will probably be about 20 riders there, I know there are some coming from Denmark, Russia and Slovinia as well as the local lads.”

But Tyrer is funding the trip himself and needs sponsorship. Any individual or business who can help should contact the Sheffield Speedway office on 01142 853142. He also has a website at jordantyrerracing.com where more details are available.

Tigers will get together for their press and practice on March 21 with their opening meeting of the season against Elite League Birmingham the following Thursday.
