 Time to start revealing the wild cards for SEC 2018! First comes the man, who's passionate about boxing and power of his puch is 519. Rider, who brings fear to all the managers, against whom he's starting. Ladies and gentleman - Leon Madsen!

 One may think that he's just recently shook the speedway world, but he's already a very experienced rider. List of his biggest achievements include medals of Team Speedway Junior World Championship 2009 and Polish Extraliga gained with Unia Tarnów back in 2012.

Born in 1988 in Danish Velje, he's been currently racing with forBET Włókniarz Cześtochowa, where he had appeared before 2017 season and back then, most experts sentenced them to fail. Meanwhile, Danish rider turned out to be one of the best and his team easily secured their position in the league.

Campaign 2018 started perfectly for Madsen. Fantastic speed and spectacular style of racing were his trademarks in Speedway Best Pairs at Motoarena in Toruń. Observers pointed him as a candidate to achieve big things. It was mainly thanks to his disposition, Trans MF Pro Race Team jumped on the lowest step of the podium.

Team from Częstochowa have a great value with Madsen in their roster. Currently, he's in TOP 10 of PGE Ekstraliga, when it comes to a heat average. His great form was also confirmed in the friendly match between Poland and Denmark, where he leaded his team with 12 points in a lost match against Poles.

Fight for the Europe's top rider will be a great challenge for Madsen. Before 2017, many saw him as a candidate to reach a medal, but reality turned out to be a little bit harder. Ultimately, Danish rider was only 13th in the overall classification. Will it be better now? One thing can be sure - looking at his racing, there's no way to be bored and complain!
