Shanes missed the last two rounds of the 2019 series through injury but his fourth in the opening round at Herxhiem and his fifth overall in 2018 stood him in good stead when it came to the pick.

Chris ‘Bomber’ who finished sixth in 2019 will also be gunning for World Glory as will Richard Hall who makes it a trio of Brits in this years series after finishing fifth in the Long Track Challenge at Scheessel.
