David Bellego, Kai Huckenbeck, Timo Lahti, Vaclav Milik and Piotr Pawlicki are going to join the lineup of Speedway Euro Championships 2021. The Individual European Championship series will start in 19 days in Bydgoszcz.
We already know the full lineup of this year's Individual European Championship. Robert Lambert, Leon Madsen, Mikkel Michelsen and Bartosz Smektala secured their spots in last year’s competition. These five were joined by last year's sixth place finisher, Nicki Pedersen, who will replace Grigori Laguta in this year's series.
The next five places were taken by riders, who did their best in Pardubice, where the SEC Challenge was held. Patryk Dudek was the winner of the meeting. Apart from Dudek, Daniel Bewley and Sergey Logachev stood on the podium as well. Places 4 and 5 were taken by the 2017 SEC winner, Andzejs Lebedevs and the Dane Patrick Hansen, who had to fight in an extra heat with Timo Lahti for promotion to SEC 2021.
After Saturday's event in Pardubice, the promotors awarded five permanent wild cards for SEC 2021 to riders, who competed in the SEC series in past years: David Bellego, Kai Huckenbeck, Timo Lahti, Vaclav Milik and Piotr Pawlicki.
