Danish champion Niels-Kristian Iversen is set to undergo surgery in a bid to overcome a troublesome shoulder injury.

His British club King’s Lynn revealed the news after it was confirmed the Dane hadn’t been selected for the Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations.

We look forward to seeing Niels back fitter and stronger and this layoff can only be beneficial for both Niels and King’s Lynn Speedway with a view to the long term.

Iversen is due to step in for injured Slovak star Martin Vaculik at the ANLAS Czech SGP in Prague on Saturday.

But he’s set to miss King’s Lynn’s trip to Rye House on Monday and the home clash with Somerset next Wednesday, before returning to their colours at Poole on June 13.

NKI sat out the last five rounds of SGP 2017 with the shoulder problem and has struggled to find his best form consistently so far this term. It’s hoped the surgery will help him get back to his best.

Stars boss Dale Allitt told the club’s official website: “Niels and I have had a long chat about this and we agree this is the best course of action.

“He was in great form at Belle Vue for us on Monday, but the treatment is something he really needs to have with such a demanding season ahead.

“The timescale is such that he will only miss next week’s meetings for us but will be back for our trip to Poole.

“We look forward to seeing Niels back fitter and stronger and this layoff can only be beneficial for both Niels and King’s Lynn Speedway with a view to the long term.”
