Danish starlet Mikkel B Jensen admits he is unlikely to be seen in the Elite League any time soon.
He is in the process of going full-time as a speedway rider, having left school in June. Mikkel B hasn't been short of offers from the Polish Ekstraliga and Swedish Elitserien since his World Cup triumph with Denmark at Malilla on July 14.
It was initially thought the Esbjerg rider would pursue a job in Britain at the start of next year.
But having become a world champion with his country at just 17-years-old, his stock has risen and Jensen admits he is planning to give the hectic British fixture list a miss, despite a brief spell with Swindon Robins last year.
"I'm set on doing the best leagues in Poland, Sweden and Denmark and Great Britain is a bit out of my mind right now. I think it would be too much for me," he said.
"There are a lot of British fans who have asked me to come and ride for their club, but I won't be there in 2012. There are a lot of people who expected me to ride, but I can't do it.
"It'll be good to come and see all my fans, have a good race and hopefully put on a good show for them to enjoy."
