Share on:

Leon Madsen got the silver medal of the Individual European Championships. The Dane won three rounds of this year's cycle, but it was not enough to reclaim the title.

After the tournament in Rybnik it seemed that nobody is able to stop Madsen. The Dane, as the first rider in the history of TAURON SEC cycle won three rounds in a row and was the main candidate for the final triumph. One unsuccessful round, which took place in Gniezno, crossed Madsen's plans to reclaim the championship title.

Before the final round in Torun, the Vice-World Champion had two points loss to Robert Lambert. During the competition in Toruń, Madsen reduced the loss to one point, but at the end it was Lambert who reached for the gold medal of the Individual European Championships, ending the series with a three points advantage over the second Madsen.

During a press conference that took place after the competition, the Dane was asked, what was his plan for the final heat in Torun. Madsen stresses that his plans were verified very quickly.

- Of course I wanted to beat him, but when tape went up and I looked to the left he was already gone and that was the end.

Despite the lack of a gold medal for this year's TAURON SEC, it was a very successful series for Leon Madsen. The Dane appeared in the final heat four times and he stood on the top step of the podium three times.

- That was a good season for me in the European Championship series. I won three rounds, Stood up on the podium in Toruń, so it's good. I screwed up in Gniezno, that was a tough meeting for me. I couldn't make it work there. The track was very difficult. Robert did a fantastic job in Gniezno and he did the same in Toruń. He kept his head cool, hats off to him. I'm happy with the silver medal and now I'm looking forward to the GP. I'm Vice-World Champion and Vice-European Champion and I still have a chance to be the World Champion this year. I'm happy about how the European Championships went this time. We have a few things to improve, we take the good things from here and now we start to focus on the GP series - said Leon Madsen.
