Adam Roynon returns to the Comets for the 2016 season.
We are delighted to announce that Cumbrian-born racer Adam Roynon can be named as the fourth member of the Comets 2016 line-up, which sees him return to the club where he had his best ever season in the sport back in 2012.
The 27-year-old, who hails from Barrow-in-Furness, has had a career blighted by injury that has undoubtedly stopped him reaching his full potential so far, but a return to Derwent Park could be just what is needed to set him back on track; just as it did three years ago.
Comets team manager Tony Jackson said: “When Adam joined us back in 2012 it followed an injury hit season spent with Redcar that had seen his average drop to around four-and-a-half points. But, the season at Derwent Park saw that shoot up to over seven points and, when bonus points were included that figure rose to just under nine points, putting him on top of our combined averages.
“His home average was actually over ten points a match including bonus points and he also held the track record at Derwent Park while the highlight for him that season came at Somerset in the Premier League Pairs, where he combined with Rene Bach to take the title for the Comets.
“He now returns to us in a very similar situation to the last time, having had an injury-hit season with Redcar, which has seen his average fall to 4.39, and in our opinion he is a much better rider than that figure suggests. With a return to Derwent Park there is no reason why, given an injury-free run, he can't add a substantial amount to that starting figure.
“Adam was always very popular at Workington and a great entertainer on track. We have remained in touch ever since he was last here and are delighted that we have now been able to bring him back to Workington this time, which for one reason or another we haven't been able to do in recent years. But, this is definitely a move that makes good sense for him and for us and, if he can regain something like his previous form with us, this could prove to be a very significant signing.
“Having agreed the deal for next season I called in to see Adam on the way home from this week's AGM and he really is very excited and enthusiastic about coming back to Workington and getting his career back on track.”
Roynon (4.39) joins the already announced trio of Ricky Wells (8.86), Kenneth Hansen (6.84) and Matt Williamson (3.00) on next season's team sheet, which leaves 19.41 points available for the three remaining team places in order to fit within the 42.50 team building points-limit.
