Michelsen: This victory means a lot for me

Share on:

Mikkel Michelsen won the third round of the TAURON Speedway Euro Championship 2019, which took place in Vojens. Due to high point score, Dane was promoted to third place in the intermediate classification of the cycle.

The first two rounds of this year's struggle were not successful for a rider from Nykobing. In Vojens, however, it was completely different. Already in the first series of starts, Michelsen made the best impression among all competitors who won their races. Throughout the tournament, Dane was very well suited to the track there and did not make mistakes. Michelsen was promoted to the final immediately after the main round. In the last race of the day he fought an exciting fight for victory with Kacper Woryna, from which he came out unscathed. For the Dane, the competition in Vojens was special, because his family sat in the stands, who had the opportunity to watch his first victory in the history of the cycle of the Individual European Championships.

- It was good to come back to Vojens. I last started here in 2013 or 2014. This place is full of memories and the tradition of Danish speedway. I am very pleased with my performance. The first two rounds did not go my way. I knew that if I wanted to attack I had to do it in Vojens, otherwise the last round would not matter to me. I am very pleased with the work of my team, which made my motorbikes perform great. I am glad that my family and sponsors watched the competition while in the stands. This means a lot to me. It's great - said Mikkel Michelsen after the competition.

Despite the victory in front of his own audience, the Dane could not celebrate his success for too long, because he was going on a long trip to Lublin, for a match in the Polish PGE Ekstraliga. Michelsen hopes to start the celebration after winning the Silesian Stadium in Chorzów.

- Today I have no time to celebrate, tomorrow I will probably have the most important match of Motor Lublin this season. I hope to celebrate in Chorzów, where I'm also going to win - ended Mikkel Michelsen.

The grand final of TAURON Speedway Euro Championship 2019 will take place on 28 September at the Silesian Stadium in Chorzów. Tickets for this event are available on eBilet.pl

French debut

 French ace is a proof that you can link a good sport level with broadening speedway map. In 2019, David Bellego made it right on multiple fronts. And what can be regretted the most is the second part of TAURON SEC 2019...

Michelsen: Two last rounds were amazing

Mikkel Michelsen became the winner of the final round of TAURON SEC 2019, which was taken at the Silesian Stadium in Chorzów (Poland). Michelsen got 15 points, which made him equal Grigorii Laguta's score in the overall classification.

Laguta: I am missing luck

Over 70 heats. For so long, Grigorii Laguta had been the leader of TAURON SEC 2019. Russian lost the gold medal in the very last, additional heat, where he had to accept Mikkel Michelsen's superiority.

Madsen: I couldn't achieve more

Mikkel Michelsen is the new European Champion

Dane won the round in Chorzów and after that, defeated Grigorii Laguta in an additional heat, decisive for the title. Locals' favourite - Kacper Woryna had a bad luck with engine's failure, which took bronze medal away.

First French rider at this level

David Bellego is the first Frenchman in TAURON SEC series. Even though he made a promising start, Bellego had some bad luck as he wasn't able to show his full potential due to an injury. In the last round of the Euro Championship, it can be hard for him to compete with this thought that chances to improve and move up in the general classification are small, but on the other hand he will have a chance to draw an attention of organizers and confirm that his place is among the Europe's top.
