DANISH favourite Ulrich Ostergaard says he’s excited by his return to Birmingham.

The 37-year-old is back with the Brummies having had two previous spells with the club in 2007 and 2011.

In recent years he’s been a reliable heat-leader for Peterborough in the second tier, helping them to three major honours.

And despite injuries interrupting his latest campaign, the 2015 Premier League Riders’ Champion insists he’s fully fit again and is confident of having another solid season.

“Injuries got the better of me this year but it means my average (7.13) is lower than what it probably should be,” Ostergaard said.

“But that’s not a bad thing because it’s got me another move to Birmingham and I know I can improve on that.

“I’ve had some good times at Perry Barr earlier in my career and I’m looking forward to going back there for a new challenge.

“When I was back there in September the people were so enthusiastic about the racing and they all made me feel really welcome back at Birmingham which was really nice.

“That challenge was my first meeting back after breaking five ribs and to be honest I probably came back to soon.

“I didn’t score as many points as I would’ve liked and I did find it tough.

“But I’m 100 per cent fit going into the winter and it’s going to be great to get back to Birmingham next season.

“I had a really good season with them in 2007 and it was such a good year for the club.

“Not only was it their first year back on track but we achieved a good finish in the league table too.

“It’s good to see them back in those higher leagues and hopefully we’ll be supported in big numbers and have a solid season on track too.”
