16-year-old Norick Blödorn is a sought-after young man. He is considered one of Germany's biggest speedway hopes, and is on the wish list of many European clubs. But Blödorn continues its Danish affiliation with SES - Sønderjylland Elite Speedway.

The dream of making his debut in the Danish Metal Speedway League remained a dream in 2020, when only Poland and Sweden completed league races at the highest level due to a certain pandemic.

Still, Norick Blödorn got a glimpse of his talent in the season that has now come to an end. He has, among other things. a driven for Vojens Speedway Klub in the 1st division, which is the second best row, and which was completed without the audience.

Individually impressed Blödorn in this year's U21 European Championship final, it was in Gdansk for nine points and two heat victories.

Norick Blödorn was born into a pure speedway family. His father, Guido, has ridden at a serious level and his mother, Maja, is the sister of 1997 long-distance world champion Tommy Duncker.

Norick sat on his first motocross racer as a 3-year-old, but six years later he decided to bet on speedway. His father knew that the German speedway community did not have the talent to challenge the young Norick, and instead they sought out Denmark.

Therefore, Skærbæk in Sønderjylland became Norick's first club with a flourishing talent work under the leadership of Torben Hansen and Hans Clausen. In Skærbæk, Norick could also receive tips and good advice from the Danish legend and NERI youth national coach Erik Gundersen.

Since then, Norick Blödorn has not looked back. He has won rub and stump under the auspices of German youth, and in 2018 he culminated his 85cc career with the World Cup title in Polish Rybnik.

Last year, Norick debuted as the youngest driver ever at 500cc in the German speedway Bundesliga in a match between Brockstedt and Didenberg. He played a crucial role in the spectacular race, which ended 47-47. Just a week earlier, he drove himself into the top-8 in front of 9,000 spectators in the North German classic
"Pentecostal Cup" in Güstrow.

It was his first two races at 500cc.
