SEC organizers has given the wild card for the first round. It was received by Kai Huckenbeck. 23-year-old rider has been noting a progress with every next year. Despite his young age, Huckenbeck has already had two golden medals of the individual championship of Germany. First one was reached in 2013. Back then, noone made bets on him, especially not as the favourite for taking the title. Kai Huckenbeck had already a chance to start in this year's Speedway Best Pairs, where he was representing the City Team. It will be his debut in European Championship, though. As he admits, he wants to perform his best in front of his home crowd.
