KIM Jansson could be forgiven if he forgets his 'position' in the Witches pits this season.

The 25-year-old Swede knows only too well it is Chris Louis who is captain of the Suffolk side. However in a reverse of seniority, Jansson will captain Louis when the pair ride in Sweden.

Jansson is back at Kaparna in 2007 in the Swedish Elite League and the popular man from Gothenburg has been handed the skipper's role.

“It will be strange to be captaining Chris, when I have been captained by him for so long,” Jansson said. “But I'm sure we will continue to get on fine.”

Jansson will again ride in Poland as well as Sweden this year and he admits he needs to manage his time better than he did last year.

“This might sound strange but I need to organise my sleep much better,” he added. “The one thing I learned about last year was the fact you need to sleep. Sometimes I was only getting a few hours' sleep after racing in one country and driving to another. That is not enough and I will be better prepared this season.”

Jansson will be a welcome return to the Witches side of 2007, but in his fourth season, he is one rider who management want to see improve his average.
