This weekend we had the first Speedway GP in Warsaw, Poland. Our rider Fredrik Lindgren finished 2nd place in the final. This is huge event for eastern Europe with over 56,000 spectators present. It’s live on TV all over east Europe and Sweden. Fredrik Lindgren is on of the biggest stars in the Speedway GP.

Second on the podium this weekend is Larissa Papenmaier who was third in the woman class at the MXGP in Agueda, Portugal. She is second in the championship after two rounds. We have some fast women here who currently fall in 2,7 and 10 for the total standings.

Albin Elowson was in Slovakia for the European Enduro Championship and took the overall win on Saturday, but had a DNF Sunday with a broken engine.

In the UK we had Round 3 of the MX Nationals at Lyng with Rob Hooper Yamaha team riders Ryan Houghton and Taylor Hammal. Ryan was 6th overall but some bad luck for Taylor with 2 DNF.
