Madsen: I'm back in the game

Share on:

Leon Madsen was the runner-up of TAURON Speedway Euro Championship 2018 second round in Güstrow. Thanks to his impressive score, Dane moved up in the overall classification of the series.

During Saturday's meeting, Leon Madsen showed some solid racing at the German track, having only one failed heat, whilst finishing as first in four of them. After finishing this round with 14 points gathered, Madsen moved to the second position in overall classification. Currently, he's only three points away from the leader - Jarosław Hampel.

- I'm pleased about today, because I scored many points and got back in the game. It was an important meeting for me. Gniezno was not so good, but I knew if I would have got here a good result, that would take me up in the overall classification. There are still two rounds left. I'm currently second, so there's a lot to fight for. Now, we're celebrating, but already looking forward to the next rond, which will definitely be a tough one. This year, there's some great line up in TAURON SEC. There are no easy heats, you need to stay sharp to collect points - Madsen said.

Third round of the Individual Speedway European Championship is going to be held in Daugavpils (Latvia). Leon Madsen says that track in Latvia suits him better than the one in Güstrow. Two years ago, during the second SEC round, which was held in Daugavpils, Madsen was ninth after getting 8 points.

- I don't know how I should race there, but has just watched the starting numbers draw and from what I've heard, my number is not so good actually. However, I do feel the track in Latvia suits me better than the one here in Germany. It's definitely a bigger track and I'm looking forward to this meeting with optimism. I will be ready - Madsen ended.

Bright shine for the future

 For a long time, 2019 was a really tough season for Paweł Przedpełski. Polish rider couldn't be satisfied with both his starts in the league and individual meetings. Luckily, a successful ending occurred, which may give a bright shine for the future. One of the main reasons of thinking so is Pole's performance in Chorzów.

Great moment for Michelsen

 Not everything had been going in his line when it comes to rivalry in TAURON SEC 2019. Mikkel Michelsen worked hard through the whole season and made his dream about the gold medal true. He seems like a perfect example of a great determination that can take you to the top.

French debut

 French ace is a proof that you can link a good sport level with broadening speedway map. In 2019, David Bellego made it right on multiple fronts. And what can be regretted the most is the second part of TAURON SEC 2019...

Michelsen: Two last rounds were amazing

Mikkel Michelsen became the winner of the final round of TAURON SEC 2019, which was taken at the Silesian Stadium in Chorzów (Poland). Michelsen got 15 points, which made him equal Grigorii Laguta's score in the overall classification. In the additional heat, it was Dane, who defeated Russian and ultimately ended as the new European Champion.

Laguta: I am missing luck

Over 70 heats. For so long, Grigorii Laguta had been the leader of TAURON SEC 2019. Russian lost the gold medal in the very last, additional heat, where he had to accept Mikkel Michelsen's superiority.

Madsen: I couldn't achieve more

Leon Madsen got the bronze medal in TAURON Speedway Euro Championship 2019. In Chorzów, Dane defeated Kacper Woryna in an extra heat and reached for the third position overall.
