After very exhilarating rounds in Toruń and Güstrow, best European riders move to Sweden to a picturesque town of Hallstavik. Who will be crowned as the king of HZ Bygg Arena and make a "pole position" before the final in Lublin?

So far, it's Andzejs Lebedevs, who has the most reasons for joy. Even though Latvian did not win in Poland or Germany, his appearance on the podium (twice) led him to the top of the table. "Pajaja" has been proving that his spectacular racing this season is not a coincidence. Latvian rider started from the third position in Toruń and then came second in Güstrow. Is it time to be number 1?
Right after this revelation of 2017, we have Artem Laguta, who made use of Lebedevs' mistake during the final in Germany and won the second round. Russian rider will be also one of the favourites to win the round in Hallstavik.

TOP 3, after two rounds is completed by Vaclav Milik, who on the last weekend of July, proved in the league clash in Gorzów, that his form has been constantly going up. Czech rider can expect to repeat his last year's medal success.

For some, it can be quite a surprise, that after two rounds, in the TOP 3, there is not even one Pole. In the last couple of months, Polish riders have been dominating world's speedway, but this fight for superiority in Europe has been going different way. Krzysztof Kasprzak is closest to join the TOP3. Born in Leszno, after a good performance in Güstrow, Kasprzak has only 1-point loss to Milik and will try to catch him on HZ Bygg Arena.

Surprisingly for many, there's Mateusz Szczepaniak ranked right after "KK". Wanda Kraków's rider hasn't jumped on the podium yet this year, but his solidity and regularity led him to the 5th position overall. It's slightly worse with Przemysław Pawlicki, who in recent weeks, has been racing a bit disappointing. Will a breakthrough come in Hallstavik? If Polish rider wants to fight for a medal, his advance to the final in Hallstavik, seems like a neccessity.

When it comes to the hosts, they will definitely keep their fingers crossed for Andreas Jonsson, who was born in Hallstavik. Rospiggarna's rider will do everything not to let his fans down. Wild Card for this round was given to Jacob Thorssell, who has been improving in the Polish league. For this 24 y.o. rider, it's a perfect moment to try his chances among the top-notch riders.

Ahead of all the riders coming to HZ Bygg Arena, there's only one aim - getting a best possibile position before the decisive round, which comes on September 16th in Lublin. Regardless of what's coming, round in Hallstavik can be crucial when it comes to the whole SEC series. Therefore, we can expect that none of the riders will shut the gas down!

Third round of Speedway Euro Championship comes on August 5th in Hallstavik. Tickets for this round are available here: www.bit.ly/SEC_HALLSTAVIK.

Final of this year’s SEC will take place in Lublin on September 16th. Tickets are available: www.bit.ly/SEC_LUBLIN.
