JACOB OLSEN: COUNTRY COULD NOT MOTIVATE LEON MADSEN IN VOJENS

12/09/2019

The recent days of downpours from Saturday's Danish World Cup Grand Prix in Vojens, where Leon Madsen - probably - lost the World Cup opportunity, got new nutrition on Wednesday. Denmark's Motor Union published on its website and facebook, an internal report in which Country coach Hans Nielsen laid the ground conditions in Vojens for the performance in which none of the three participating Danes reached the semi-finals. This criticism falls, Vojen director Jacob Olsen finds unreasonable. Instead, he points out that Hans Nielsen was unable to motivate the Danish drivers.

& #8211; I think it is unprofessional that NERI chooses to publish the coach's report. It does not seem adequate, stands in contradiction, and is a daunting example of poor communication, says Jacob Olsen.

The coach's report states on the track:

Precisely the track was one of the reasons why Leon Madsen had his challenges. Leon, who is just hammering at passing, when the track allows - and it is mainly the ability that has brought him to the forefront most of the season and which the audience loves to watch. The heavy track, combined with his many injuries, therefore made it extra difficult for him.

Jacob Olsen acknowledges that the track was so fast that the track record was broken, but points out that in Vojens the Danish riders had offered to get some training sessions in the weeks leading up to the World Cup race. As you know, the official World Cup training on Friday was canceled due to heavy rains.

& #8211; Usually I have a good cooperation with NERI and the national coach. But last Saturday, I experienced - and several speedway people - how the country coach acted directly demotivating Leon Madsen. They spent an incredible amount of energy focusing on the path conditions they couldn't figure out. That kind of negative energy was certainly not seen in drivers like Bartosz Zmarzlik or Emil Saytfudinov, says Jacob Olsen.

& #8211; It was not the track, but the Danish drivers and the coaches' ability to motivate, who failed. This is the grandprix series, where all 10 departments have their own special and different course conditions.
