Peter Kildemand gets Wildcard for Vojens

22/07/2019

- SEC Ovethi 3rd European Championships August 10, 2019

With 29-year-old fynbo Peter Kildemand to start, Denmark gets as many as six riders on the track when Vojens Speedway Center resurfaces as an international speedway mecca.

Four years ago Peter Kildemand delighted the Danish speedway environment with a spectacular grandprix victory, when the World Cup was run for the first time at the CASA Arena in Horsens. A new victory in Slovenian Krsko - the following year - created high expectations for Peter Kildemand, who had already become U21 team world champion in 2010, and senior team world champion in 2014.

In recent years, however, injuries and adversity have sent Kildemand back a little, compared to being on the top shelf of speedway sports, just as this year's grandprix and European Championship qualification did not bring success to the elegant speedway driver who daily runs for Fjelsted, Swedish Vestervik and Polish Gorzow.

With the wild card issued by the Polish SEC organizer, One Sport, Kildemand now has the chance to showcase his qualities, in front of a large audience for the big opening party in Vojens, and TV viewers in 71 countries.

The chance as a lane reserve, Saturday, August 10, is given to the U21 drivers Frederik Jakobsen and Andreas Lyager.

Denmark will be the most represented nation in this year's SEC EM series, with reigning European champion Leon Madsen drying out with Mikkel Michelsen, Nicki Pedersen, Michael Jepsen Jensen and Anders Thomsen.
