Third round of Speedway Euro Championship 2016 is coming. On upcoming Saturday, in Togliatti at 5PM local time, the best European riders will be back in fighting for the championship points. Who will end as the best one? Emil Sayfutdinov, Grigorij Laguta or maybe Nicki Pedersen?
Andzejs Lebedevs is one of three wild card holders to start in Speedway Euro Championship 2016. Young and talented Latvian proved in the first round that he is able to reach a lot, so before the second round in his hometown - Daugavpils, he was put among the favourites to stand on the rostrum. That evening though did not belong to him. Maybe, the third round will be a breakthrough.
One of the favourites of the battle in the second round of Speedway Euro Championship was Grigorij Laguta and Russian got the things done great. During the rainy ceremony of the best riders of the evening he was standing at the top of the rostrum.
We are right after taking down the emotions of the second round of Speedway Euro Championship in Daugavpils and already in a week, we will be witnessing the third round of the battle to become the Individual European Champion. This time, riders will move East, to Togliatti, situated 985 kilometers from Moscow.
In this season, riders starting with a wild card have been doing really good so far. First, we had Kai Huckenbeck taking the third place in Güstrow and now, Maksims Bogdanovs was very close to repeating this success in Daugavpils.
Between the first and fourteenth rider in the overall classification of Speedway Euro Championship, there is only a 5-point difference. Can the fight for the Individual European Champion can be even more interesting than that?
