World Under-21 champion Max Fricke hopes a less hectic fixture list will help him lead Belle Vue’s bid for Premiership glory.

He completes the 2017 Aces team, joining his fellow countryman Justin Sedgmen, Danish star Kenneth Bjerre and the British quartet of Craig Cook, Steve Worrall, Dan Bewley and Jack Smith in boss Mark Lemon’s new-look side.

The four-time Aussie Under-21 champion starts the year at No.1 and hopes to race more of Aces’ fixtures this year after the club’s early-season postponements led to a host of clashes last term.

I wasn’t sure if I’d be racing in Britain at all to begin with, so when I got the call from Belle Vue I was more than happy to sign a new deal.

He said: “I wasn’t sure if I’d be racing in Britain at all to begin with, so when I got the call from Belle Vue I was more than happy to sign a new deal.

“It was a tough season last year. The early postponements in England were what caused me to miss a lot of the UK fixtures towards the end of the year. It was nobody’s fault, but it was not ideal.

“This year I don’t believe I will have too many clashes in Europe as I’m not riding in Denmark, only Poland and Sweden, so I’m really looking forward to spending more time in Manchester.”

Fricke likes the look of the new Aces side and management team as they chase a third straight Grand Final appearance.

He added: “There have been a lot of changes at Belle Vue these last few months. The new owners are keen to push on and make the club great again so it’ll be a new challenge for all concerned.

“As well as the new management, there are a few new faces in the team as well. We’ve got a great bunch of lads riding for us this year so hopefully, all being well, we’re in for a good season.”
