GREAT Britain boss Rob Lyon insists Scott Nicholls will be the man at beat at the British Final at Poole on May 20.

Nicholls will be making a rare appearance at a British track after deciding to sit out the Elite League this season.

Despite his decision, Lyon moved quickly to appoint him as skipper of the British side once again for this summer's World Cup - and the BSPA were quick to ask him if he would like to defend his British crown.

Said Lyon: “It'll be good to see Scott back on these shores. He's still a great rider and it was a personal decision on his part to cut down on his schedule.
