MJJ PUTS DACKARNA TOP
Tuesday 29th May 2012, 21:21
Copenhagen wild card Michael Jepsen Jensen limbered up for his SGP debut in style, scorching to 14 points as Dackarna went top of the Swedish Elitserien with a 47-43 win at home to Vetlanda.
The Danish starlet, who dons the No.16 race jacket for the FIM Dansk Metal Danish SGP on June 9, collected four heat wins in his six outings, including triumphs over Jason Crump, Emil Sayfutdinov and Swedish SGP finalist Thomas H Jonasson.
Aussie sensation Darcy Ward returned to Swedish action with a bang, scoring 12 paid 14 from five, while Gothenburg gold medallist Freddie Lindgren notched nine paid 11. World No.2 Andreas Jonsson contributed just five.
Polish star Jaroslaw Hampel led the Vetlanda scoreboard on 10, while Emil Sayfutdinov accrued eight paid 10. Reserve Martin Vaculik added eight and Jason Crump started off with three thirds, but picked up a win in heat 14 to end on six.
Elsewhere, World Under-21 champion Maciej Janowski piled up 13 paid 14 to lead Piraterna to a thumping 58-31 win over Vargarna in Motala.
SGP star Chris Holder recorded 11 paid 13, while reserve Linus Sundstrom raced to 11 paid 12. World champion Greg Hancock bagged nine paid 11 from four.
Swedish veteran Peter Karlsson starred for the Wolves on 12 paid 13, while Danish champion Nicki Pedersen had an off-night by his very high standards on eight.
The visitors were without SGP rider Bjarne Pedersen, who had a prior engagement for Prague in the Czech league. He recorded 15 paid 16 from six as the capital club won 53-40 at home to Divisov.
Meanwhile, Danish international Niels-Kristian Iversen romped to a superb 17 paid 18-point maximum at Vastervik. But it was not enough to save his Indianerna side from a 48-42 loss.
Former world No.5 Mikael Max led the home team’s charge on 10 paid 11. Croatian hotshot Jurica Pavlic tallied 10 and SGP racer Peter Ljung added eight paid nine. British racer Chris Harris had a night to forget, scoring two paid three.
Hans Andersen collected eight paid nine for the away side, but Antonio Lindback scored just four from three outings.
In the night’s other meeting, Hammarby survived the absence of Polish legend Tomasz Gollob to pick up their first win of the season – a 46-44 triumph at Valsarna.
Gollob sat out following the heavy crash he suffered at Hammarby last Tuesday, which knocked him unconscious and left him below-par in Gothenburg on Saturday.
But Sebastian Alden starred in his absence on 10, while Polish shooting star Tobiasz Musielak notched nine paid 11 and Adrian Miedzinski scored nine paid 10. Daniel Nermark led the home team on 10 paid 11 and Krzysztof Buczkowski collected nine paid 10.
