Leon Madsen won the second round of TAURON Speedway Euro Championship, which last Saturday was held in Toruń. The Dane scored 15 points and finished second in the intermediate classification of the cycle, losing to Grigorij Laguta, one point.

From the beginning of the competition, Leon Madsen presented himself perfectly. The Dane won his races with a big advantage over his rivals, but in run number 10 he fell into a rut through which he hit Anders Thomsen. As a result of the accident, the younger Danes had to withdraw from the competition.

- It was a good competition, but due to rainfall before the competition, a few ruts appeared on the corners, and when I fell into one of them I hit Anders. It was an unfortunate accident. I hope everything is fine with him. I think about him and I wish him a quick return to the track - said Leon Madsen.

After being eliminated in the third series of starts, the champion of the title did not give his opponents any more points and ended the struggle with 15 points on the account. After the victory in Torun, Madsen approached the leader of the Grigory Laguta cycle for one point in the intermediate classification.

At Motoarena, the Dane had a special support. The struggle was watched by his daughter, Marika.

- It was the first individual competition she saw in her life. I think she brought me luck. I am glad that I managed to win today - ended the Individual European Champion 2018, Leon Madsen.

The third round of TAURON Speedway Euro Championship 2019 will take place on August 10 in Vojens. Tickets for this event are available at www.billetlugen.dk and at speedwayeuro.com.

First French rider at this level

David Bellego is the first Frenchman in TAURON SEC series. Even though he made a promising start, Bellego had some bad luck as he wasn't able to show his full potential due to an injury. In the last round of the Euro Championship, it can be hard for him to compete with this thought that chances to improve and move up in the general classification are small, but on the other hand he will have a chance to draw an attention of organizers and confirm that his place is among the Europe's top.
