The Comets are to make a change in the riding order as they enter a busier part of the season now that Mason Campton has obtained a real average as opposed to the assessed average that he started the season with.
After discussing it with the riders, the Comets management felt that this move will give the side a greater balance, particularly away from home. So, as of this weekend Mason and Rasmus Jensen will swap places.
This puts Mason in the number 2 race-jacket and Rasmus in the line-up at number 4.
Comets team manager Tony Jackson said: "It is something we have all talked about at some length for two or three weeks now; but with Mason having now attained a real average (5.62) and getting dialled back into the UK tracks, which he hadn't seen since 2014 of course, we feel that this move could benefit everyone and is definitely worth trying at this point in time.
"Everyone is agreed that this might just get us a few more points on the road, while at home we don't really feel that it will make so much of a difference.
"However, you don't want riders racing in different team positions home and away as you need them to get used to a regular race partner and hopefully build up an understanding, so this change will be for all matches."
