A SPATE of injuries early in his career almost pushed Ryan Douglas away from speedway – but now the Aussie is flying again and thankful that he didn’t turn his back on the sport. In this week’s edition, our front cover star reveals: “When I first came over to Scunthorpe, I started going okay. But I kept getting injured and breaking a lot of femurs, legs and stuff like that. That kind of slowed me down and I lost confidence for a few years. To be honest, I was pretty over it at the time. I didn’t have my best season at the time. I was looking forward to going home and just riding for fun really. I had a few months where I didn’t really ride. But I started speaking to Darcy (Ward) about things, I then got on a bike again. I was enjoying it. I had that year off, I then started doing well in Australia and felt like I could have another good go at it. I worked on some things and came back and started again fresh.”
