Denmark's latest WC Grand Prix winner Anders Thomsen did not get the chance on Saturday, when the Danish national team had to settle for fourth place at this year's Team WC - Speedway of Nations - at the Vojens Speedway Center, but on Wednesday evening Thomsen is ready to turn out for SES - Sønderjylland Elite Speedway, in the match against GSK Grindsted.

The dust has barely settled over the Vojens Speedway Center, where management and staff, after last week's powerful performance with four WC races in four days, are getting ready for the next showdown in the SpeedwayLiga, where Grindsted and Kenneth Bjerre will be visiting.

SES – Sønderjylland Elite Speedway is still at the top of the best Danish league, while GSK Grindsted is in 4th place. It is still about getting the best starting point for the semi-finals and DM team final in September.

In addition to Anders Thomsen, the audience on Wednesday can experience several of the drivers from last week's WC party in Vojens. SES – Sønderjylland Elite Speedway also has U21 star Benjamin Basso, who was the big Danish profile in Friday's U21 WC final on the team.

Nicolai Klindt, Mads Hansen and Jesper Knudsen complete the SES team

GSK Grindsted's Kevin Juhl Pedersen was also on the Danish U21 WC team, and the club also has the young Latvian Francis Gusts on the team.

Francis Gusts was born in Riga, and is internationally regarded as one of the world's greatest speedway talents. Gusts was both in the senior team semi-final 1, and was the individual top scorer in Friday's U21 final, where Latvia finished in fourth place.
