He said: "Obviously during the 2019 season I messed up a bit in Russia with Craig Cook when we had that crash in the Speedway of Nations.
"Then, I had another crash in Torun and I was out for a month which meant I missed a chunk of Stars home meetings.
"I was really busy last season and when meetings don't go right, you wish you weren't as busy so you can focus on performing better.
"This is something we will have to learn from in 2020 because I don't want to be too busy, I need to try and work on the meetings I have, and try to stay injury-free."
