Timo Lahti: Riding for the Eagles in 2013
Eastbourne Eagles have completed their line-up for the 2013 Elite League season with the signing of Simon Gustafsson and Timo Lahti.
Swede Gustafsson and Finn Lahti, who was Eagles rider of the year last year, join Bjarne Pedersen, Adam Shields, Cameron Woodward, Lukas Dryml and Denis Gizatullin in comprising the squad.
Team manager and co-promoter Trevor Geer was pleased to secure deals for the duo, who he believes have plenty to offer in the future.
"Timo is a quick leaner and is always riding," said Geer. "That's why he made such great progress.
"Of course it will be harder for him as he starts in the main body of the team, rather than as one of our reserves. However, I think he will adapt and continue his rise to the top.
"Simon Gustafsson is still improving and working hard this winter to make sure he has a marvellous season in 2013. He is focusing hard on the season ahead and his performances are still on the up.
"There's room for plenty of improvement throughout the whole team and our fans can look forward to an exciting season. This is a strong team and everyone will win races and score heavily."
