Mikkel Michelsen was fourth in the first round of TAURON Speedway Euro Championship 2018, which was held in Gniezno. Dane was struggling not only with rivals at the track, but mainly with a big pain caused by shoulder's injury.

Through the whole meeting, nearly after every heat, an inherent image was him having ice put on his shoulder. Dane got this injury during the league match in Poland and it was really close to make him eliminated from the start in Euro Championship.
Despite a huge pain, Dane was getting better and better with every next heat, which made him got through to the final heat of the round in Gniezno.

- I knew before today that i was not gonna be 100 % ready and I actually found out that I'm not even close, so the main goal was just to score points in every race and get as many points as i possible could. We managed to battle through the pain and my mechanics did a good job with the bikes. It made a little bit easier for me, because in two first races i wasn't feeling too comfortable, I was struggling holding the bike when i was racing. We found a good solution in a middle of way to still have a speed, and for me to have maximum control on bike - Michelsen said.

Dane's advance to the final heat was quite a surprise. Even in full health, there were probably not many who had put him as a candidate to win in Gniezno. Michelsen proved, however, he is able to be one of the top scoring riders in TAURON Speedway Euro Championship. 

- Be in a final - it wasn't our expectation. I'm just happy for today. It was good first round for me and we just want to look forward to the next one - Michelsen ended.

Second round of TAURON Speedway Euro Championship 2018 will be held in Güstrow on July 14, 2018. Tickets are available: http://bit.ly/TAURON_SEC_GUSTROW.

Przedpełski : The result could be a little different

After the inauguration inauguration in Guestrow, Paweł Przedpełski noted a much better performance in the second round of TAURON SEC, which took place in Toruń on July 27. On Motoarena the Pole scored eight points and was classified in ninth place. Thanks to that he made some points in the general classification, but he is still far from the top. We talk with Pawełek about the importance and course of the competition in Toruń, the fall with Adrian Miedziński, as well as about the missed chance for an even better result and the plan for the second part of the struggle for the title of European Champion.
