SWINDON Robins have been hit by news that reserve rider Claus Vissing has been suspended by the Speedway Control Bureau for 10 days.

The 33-year-old has been suspended as a consequence of his actions prior to his Championship meeting with Glasgow Tigers at Eastbourne on Saturday, August 3.

Vissing was judged to have breached rule 3.2.8 which reads: “Any act which is violent, threatening or abusive nature to any official, rider or any other person.”

The Danish reserve’s suspension will start tomorrow and run until Wednesday, August 21 – meaning he will miss three SGB Premiership fixtures for the Robins.

He will not only be absent in Manchester tomorrow night as Alun Rossiter’s men tackle Belle Vue, but he will also miss trips to Ipswich and Poole on August 15 and 19 respectively.

Craig Cook and Edward Kennett were other riders to be suspended, picking up 12 and 10 day bans respectively.

The Adver is currently waiting on confirmation with regards to who will replace Vissing for these fixtures.
