 In 2019 Danish rider, Frederik Jakobsen, raced his final year as a junior, taking part in the U21 World Championships for the last time.
But otherwise it was also a year of firsts – first place with Team Fjelsted in the Danish Metal League, first Swedish final in the Elitserien with Dackarna and first-time racing in the SEC.

Jakobsen took part in Round 3 in his home country at Vojens Speedway Center, where the first round will take place on 20 June 2020.
Leon Madsen’s injury may have meant that he forfeits the chance to the win the SEC in 2019, but his misfortune gave the young Dane a chance to shine again on the international stage, as he had done in the Speedway of Nations competition in Togliatti, Russia earlier in the year.

“It was really cool night [in Vojens] and I had a decent meeting with seven points”, he says.
But ever the competitor, he can also see where he could have bettered his results, “in my first two heats I was leading for some laps but threw it away in the end. If I didn't do that, I would have been on 10 points, which would have been really good in a very competitive field. I think I showed I can easily ride with these guys”.

The two people that overtook him were fellow Danes, Michael Jepsen Jensen and the 2019 winner in Vojens and the overall SEC champion, Michael Mikkelsen. The 21-year-old nonetheless, picked up three second places beating seasoned pros like Jaroslaw Hampel and Grigorij Laguta, as well as 2018 U21 World Champion, Bartosz Smektala.

Jakobsen raced against Smektala and others in his last ever U21 World Championship in 2019. But views his tenth place as “disappointing, to say the least”.

One contributing factor, he thinks, is that in 2019 he had only one mechanic. Together they travelled over 80,000 km during the season, “sometimes I came to races with dirty bikes and maybe only 80% ready ‘cause we travelled all night to get there,” he admits.
But he is not going to miss the chance to learn from his experience and better himself for 2020, “I have made many changes to this season and also got two new mechanics, which I think will help me take my career to the next step.”

The Dane will be racing in Poland, Germany, Denmark and Sweden in 2020. But do not be surprised if you see him on the international stage again, “My focus will be on league racing in 2020, but I will of course also race the qualification rounds for the SEC and GP series”, says Jakobsen.

Lambert peaks in time for Torun

Robert Lambert had a match to remember on Friday scoring 13+1 and playing a pivot roll in Rybnik’s first win of the season at home to Gorzow. And his “super-sub” performance from the #8 position was not just good news for his club, but also good news for his chances at winning another SEC Round as he did in Güstrow, Germany in 2018. That is because in his three of his four heat wins for Rybnik, he beat TAURON SEC rivals, Vaclav Milik and Krzysztof Kasprzak who were paired together for the visitors.
