Huckenbeck: Finish in the TOP 5

Share on:

Kai Huckenbeck can become the sixth rider in the history of SEC, who took part in more than 100 races of the Individual European Championship. To make it happen, the representative of Germany must take part in at least one round of this year's competition.

Huckenbeck has been in the SEC series since 2015, when he started as a reserve in Landshut. Already a year later he stood on the podium in Güstrow, where he finished third in the tournament that ended after 20 races. Once again he was on the podium two years later in Gniezno, where in the final heat he crossed the finish line only behind Jarosław Hampel and Antonio Lindback.

He started last year's competition successfully. 17 points after two rounds meant that Huckenbeck was close to the TOP 5, which guarantees participation in the next edition of the series.

- I started last year series pretty well. After two rounds, I was really close to the TOP 5. Unfortunately, meetings in Gdańsk and Rybnik weren’t successful for me, and they cost me a lot of points.

So far, only five riders can boast of crossing the 100-race barrier in the SEC series. Huckenbeck could be the next one, but firstly, he must compete in this year's cycle.

- Of course, riding in the SEC series is one of my main goals for the upcoming season. Qualifying to the SGP Challenge is on my list of priorities as well.

Despite the loss of the SEC spot, Kai Huckenbeck can count the past season as a successful one. Together with the Trans MF AC Landshut Devils he won a promotion to the second level of competition in Poland (eWinner 1. Liga), won the silver medal of the Metal Speedway League (Denmark) and was scoring more than 2,00 points per race in the Bauhaus-Liga (Sweden). The German admits 2021 was a good year for him.

- It was a quite good season for myself, but there is always something to improve. It would be great to qualify to the SEC and to finish the series in the top 5.

This year's Speedway Euro Championship series will begin in Rybnik on July 2. Then the riders will compete in Güstrow (August 6), Łódź (September 3) and Pardubice (September 23).
