PETERBOROUGH no.1 Kenneth Bjerre has reported that he experienced no ill-effects following his long-awaited track comeback Tuesday afternoon at King’s Lynn.
The Readypower Panthers skipper was taking part in the first of a three-day practice with Team Denmark and he’s delighted that his opening laps went extremely well.
The pre-season session at the Norfolk Arena is the first time the Danish star has been back on a bike since breaking his leg in three places last August.
Bjerre said: “I felt really good - I didn’t suffer with any pain at all.

“I have worked really hard in the gym during the winter and I think undergoing the oxygen treatment has been worth every minute, as my leg felt really strong.
“I am sure I will have a few aches tomorrow morning like everyone will after a long time away from the bike, but I am looking forward to another four days on the bike before my first meeting next week.
