KENNETH Bjerre has revealed how Peterborough were always his first choice destination during recent contract negotiations.

The Dane spent last season on loan at near-neighbours King’s Lynn, but moves back to the East of England Showground for 2012 and has high hopes for the Panthers when the new campaign starts next March.

The popular 27-year-old also retains his place in the Grand Prix series and is looking to further improve on this year’s seventh place final standing.

Bjerre said: “I enjoyed my year at King’s Lynn and was generally happy with my form.

“The management have put a very solid team together and looking at the structure of the side we should always have a strong reserve.

“Michael (Jepsen Jensen) will start the season at reserve but realistically any one of the others could drop down during the year. This should ensure we’ll always have plenty of strength-in-depth.

“All the riders are capable of increasing their averages, including myself, and if we can do that then we should have a winning team and pushing hard towards the play-offs.

“Riders like Michael, my brother Lasse and Linus (Sundstrom) are the guys that can really make a difference though - we can expect big things from them next year.

“I’m also expecting big things from myself on the individual front next season. We have an earlier start than normal for the Grand Prixs when we fly out to Auckland, New Zealand in March - but I’ll be looking to hit the ground running and ultimately I want and believe I can be World Champion.”
