DANNY King says loyal Leicester fans and bosses deserve more from the team this season.

Popular Great Britain racer King is back with the Watling JCB Lions for a second successive season – and he admits he’s excited by the prospect after some high profile winter signings.

He says the fact club chiefs have had all winter to prepare for 2018 has been a bonus after the last gasp rush on the eve of last season.

“Leicester have been at the bottom in the last few years and the fans and management deserve more,” he said.

“The Bates family came in very late last year with no time to build a team. They had to pick up the pieces and finished the season which was great for the club.

“They have shown their dedication this winter and what they want from the sport by building a strong team.”

King also says his diary suits him down to the ground with the Premiership restricted to set race nights to avoid clashes with the second tier.

And with the Cambridge racer doubling-up with Ipswich it means there will be no fixture clashes.

He said: “The new fixture list is brilliant, it sounds really silly but it means I get to do all the meetings and it is better spaced out this year, due to set race nights in the Premiership.

“My schedule looks nice at the minute and we are not doing any 12 in 12 days, it’s steady and consistent which is nice and there are no clashes.

“I am lucky because I can double up so my schedule is about three meetings a week which is perfect. If you are only doing one league it is not enough meetings and it will be tough.”
