The second round of TAURON SEC 2022 to start!

Share on:

 The tournament in Rybnik won Leon Madsen, who, after a weak start, showed that he is a rider who likes to be the best at the most important moments. However, the Dane does not open the general classification. In this one, Mikkel Michelsen and Janusz Kolodziej are at the top. All three, combined with Patryk Dudek, Piotr Pawlicki and Bartosz Smektala, make up the list of favorites for the round in Guestrow, Germany.

Measuring only 298 meters, the oval guarantees excitement at the highest level. Speedway riders have to adjust to the short track, where using the full potential of the motorcycles requires remarkable skills. In 2021, the highest step of the podium was taken by Piotr Pawlicki, who in the finals dealt with Madsen, Dudek and Smektala. Interestingly - we will see all four of them again at the Guestrow stadium. Who knows, perhaps we are in for a repeat performance.

Ahead of the above-mentioned players is not an easy task. Appetite for the top places has all sixteen who will appear in Germany. Local fans are counting on good performances by local matadors Kai Huckenbeck and Michael Haertel. The former has repeatedly shown his excellent side in the Polish leagues, and is currently the leader of the eWinner 1. Liga revelation - Trans MF Landshut Devils. For Haertel, on the other hand, this is a chance to show himself among the best riders in Europe and a chance to promote himself in front of many speedway observers.

Who wants to chase the top? First of all, attention must be paid to Dan Bewley, who had to leave the inaugural round in Rybnik due to injury. The Briton is a standout figure for Betard Sparta Wroclaw and a rider who is giving chase to the top of the Speedway Grand Prix series. The stocks of such speedway riders as Rasmus Jensen and David Belli are also high.

The start of Saturday's competition at 7 p.m. Broadcast from 6:45 p.m. on TVP Sport and on
