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.
