Madsen: "We're not whipping boys"

Udostępnij na:

Trans MF Pro Race Team got their best result in the history of their starts in Speedway Best Pairs series. German team was second in the inaugural round of SBP in Toruń and the biggest credit goes here to Leon Madsen, who got 19 points in 7 starts.

Placing bets for Fogo Power to get another win at Motoarena was as natural as predicting Trans MF's low score. Even the company's director - Bernhard Muggenthaler did not expect their riders to get such a spectacular result. Leon Madsen did a huge job towards it and had an amazing night. In six heats, Danish rider was overtaking his rivals and won each of them easily. Only in the last heat of the night, Dane was defeated by pair Hampel-Sayfutdinov.

In Toruń, Trans MF Pro Race Team got 24 points in total (including the semi-finals), among which 19 were reached by Madsen.

- It was a long winter. We've been working very hard all winter to be prepared to the new season and I feel good, I'm in good condition, I feel sharp. Today, it was a first practice for me. I haven't had any other practice before. Only two or three times i was sitting on the bikes, so I wanted to know how everything will gonna work. We didn't have any problems at all, so I'm quite happy about that. It's always nice to start a season with a good meeting - Leon Madsen said.

While Madsen was impressing others with his effectiveness, his partners had some real issues with setting their equipment to Toruń's track. However, Dane puts it clearly that it's not important who got how many points, but the fact that Trans MF Pro Race Team managed to jump on the podium.

- This is a pair meeting, no matter who's getting points - it's all about the final score. Even when boys weren't doing right and I was on fire, I was still listening to their advices and tried to help as well.

Trans MF Pro Race Team still have two rounds of SBP to go. One year ago, German Team was trying to reach the podium in Landshut. Now, they're still in the game of the podium of the whole series.

- It's a nice feeling, I'm happy for the whole team. It's nice to give some happiness to people. We are not here to only take part in the tournament - it's too boring. We're fighting for podium! - Madsen ended.

Second round in Rzeszów is planned on April 20 (start: 8PM Cet). You can buy tickets here
