Another second place for Mikkel Michelsen. In Bydgoszcz, the Dane lost only to Leon Madsen, but another high score made him maintain the pole position in the interim classification of the series, having a satisfactory points advantage over his rivals.
Despite the lack of victory in any of the three rounds of this year's competition, before the Grand Finale in Pardubice the Dane has an eight-point advantage over second-placed Leon Madsen. As he mentioned by himself many times, what matters in the TAURON SEC series is not wins, but constant stability.
- Like I said last time, it’s nice to win obviously, but in the SEC series it’s all about consistency. Another 14 points in the bank and I’m very happy with that - he admits.
Michelsen's current season is full of ups and downs. The Dane stresses that repeatability in the Individual European Championship means much more than it looks like.
- You know, we’ve been through a lot the last three and a half months. At least, I’ve been consistent in the SEC series, with a lot of issues going on pretty much everywhere else. It’s a relief - Michelsen said.
Before the final round of the competition, the Dane has an eight-point lead over Leon Madsen, which means, he can secure the championship already in the third series. What perspective is on his mind before his travel to the Czech Republic?
- Nothing is closed and there are still 5 heats and the final. We are going in the right direction. Our eyes are on the prize, but it’s all about being consistent – he ended.
