For David Bellego the competition in Rybnik was the first in this year's cycle of Speedway Euro Championship. Due to an injury, the Frenchman couldn’t take part in previous rounds, but during Saturday's competition he presented himself from a very good side.
Last year's SEC winner Robert Lambert finished seventh in the general classification of this year's competition and that means did not secure his spot for the next year’s series. The Briton stresses that he has struggled since the beginning of the cycle.
We were expecting great emotions during the final round of the SEC in Rybnik and certainly we were not disappointed. Leon Madsen and Mikkel Michelsen fought for gold. The best turned out to be the first of them, but the latter defended the advantage in the general classification, which allowed him to stand on the top step of the podium and enter next year's edition of the Grand Prix series. Madsen eventually had to settle for silver and the additional heat for bronze was fought by Patryk Dudek and Piotr Pawlicki. In the end, the first of the Poles turned out to be better. Another additional run, settled the fact that in the European championship for next season will be Daniel Bewley and not Bartosz Smektała.
