SEC News
A dreamed-of debut

 Chance for points in Güstrow was stolen by the injury caught in the league. However, once he appeared at his track in Daugavpils, proved that he's a rider with some exceptional skills, always being a threat to his rivals.

First such case

 Janusz Kołodziej out of the TOP 5 of Speedway Euro Championship. Couple whiles ago, it was hard to imagine, however the 2016 season brought a brutal crash with reality for Pole. Since 2014, Kołodziej had been the best Polish rider in SEC, however, after this season, everything changed.

Good beginning with a bad ending

 When Martin Vaculik was winning the first round of Speedway Euro Championship in Güstrow, many people thought it could be Slovakian's year. There were rumours of him following up to his gold medal from 2013. Unfortunately, it didn't go the way "Vacul" wanted.

Injury interfered the fight

 It could be a really successful season for Hans Andersen in Speedway Euro Championship. After three rounds, he had 24 points and was losing only few points to the top. Unfortunately, fighting for something more was interfered by an injury.

A promising performance

 Anders Thomsen is the biggest surprise of SEC 2016. Dane got into the line up of the biggest European names thanks to some luck. While standing under the tape of the last heat of SEC Challenge in Olching, he needed 3 points. The thing was, he had 3 riders fighting for this pass too - Artem Laguta, Fredrik Lindgren and Przemysław Pawlicki. Luckily for Thomsen, first two got excluded and Dane managed to defeat Pawlicki and with 8 points gathered, ended as 7th and got through to the SEC Finals.

It was not supposed to be like this...

 Peter Ljung had been enjoying his promotion to the Speedway Euro Championship and announced fighting for a decent result in each round. However, he didn't follow this plan. This season was completely unsuccessful for the rider from Sweden.

Wild cards coped once again

 In every round of the Speedway Euro Championship, there's a rider starting with so called 'wild card', letting him to race in a single round. This year's choices were really accurate, because two of four riders ended at the podium or were really close to it.

Kacper Woryna: I regret these two last starts

 In the final round of Speedway Euro Championship, a local rider of ROW Rybnik - Kacper Woryna, started with the wild card. Junior from Rybnik did pretty good job gathering 6 points.

Vaclav Milik: I am really happy

 Vaclav Milik reached for the silver medal of Individual European Championship after the additional heat. The moment meeting ended, the best Czech rider could not hide his joy.

Nicki Pedersen is the new European Champion!

 It was a fascinating and exciting meeting. Additional heats had to be taken to solve the medal positions and clarify the TOP 5. Surprisingly, but fully deserved, title was reached by Dane, Nicki Pedersen. Meeting started with an one-hour delay, because of the weather issues. In Rybnik, it was raining constantly from 1PM and therefore, Jury had to wait with the decision till the very last moments

Pedersen wins in Rybnik and takes the title!

Nicki Pedersen won the last round of Speedway Euro Championship 2016 in Rybnik and grabbed the European Champion title. Fans witnessed two passionate additional heats (2nd and 4th place). 



Perfect selection of wild cards

 Definitely, season 2016 belongs to the riders, who got the permanent wild cards from the organizers of Speedway Euro Championship. Current leader is the bronze medalist from the last year - Antonio Lindbaeck, however right behind his back there is Russian - Grigorij Laguta, who got the chance from FIM Europe and One Sport.
