Madsen begins the march to defend the title

Share on:

Despite a strong opponent in the person of Mikkel Michelsen, Madsen leaves Częstochowa as the temporary leader of the series. The final featured three riders from the local team, Włókniarz.


The start of the competition was not easy for the future winner. However, after an unsuccessful first race where he finished in third position, the current European Champion found his rhythm. Alongside his compatriot, Mikkel Michelsen, he led the classification after the heat stages, accumulating thirteen points.

The Częstochowa track allowed for intense battles right from the first race. Adam Ellis proved this by securing three points in the opening race with a successful outside attack. Unfortunately for the Englishman, his subsequent performances were only worse.
On a positive note, Niels Kristian Iversen impressed the gathered fans. The Danish rider, who competed in Częstochowa as a replacement for the injured Grzegorz Zengota, made the most of the opportunity given to him by fate. He finished in a high sixth place in his second-ever appearance in the SEC series. The same can be said for the other reserve rider, Szymon Woźniak. From the very beginning, he displayed speed over the distance, allowing him to join the fight for victory.

Dimitri Berge can confidently be called the "dark horse" of the first round of TAURON SEC 2023. In his five heats in the heat stages, the Frenchman finished second in each one. Consistent performance earned him a spot in the runoff.
In the final race for victory in the inaugural round, Leon Madsen, Mikkel Michelsen, Kacper Woryna, and Szymon Woźniak fought. The defending champion emerged triumphant. The second-place on the podium was taken by the second Danish rider, with Szymon Woźniak crossing the finish line in third.
