Another week of the speedway season is behind us. This time, TAURON SEC 2024 riders competed in league matches in Poland and Denmark. Mikkel Michelsen, the current Individual European Champion, was the busiest rider, participating in two meetings in Poland and one in Denmark.

On Tuesday, an overdue match from the second round of the PGE Ekstraliga took place in Częstochowa, where Krono-Plast Włókniarz faced Betard Sparta Wrocław. The hosts were extremely motivated for their first home match of the season, as evidenced by their strong start. However, the situation shifted in heats 14 and 15, with the visiting team performing much better. Wrocław secured two double wins, resulting in a 45:45 tie. Leon Madsen led the Częstochowa team with 11 points, while Michelsen contributed 9+1.
