PEDERSEN'S SGP SEASON OVER

Triple world champion Nicki Pedersen’s FIM Speedway Grand Prix season is over after he officially withdrew from the Australian SGP.

27 / 09 / 2016, 17:24

Triple world champion Nicki Pedersen’s FIM Speedway Grand Prix season is over after he officially withdrew from the Australian SGP in Melbourne on October 22.

The Danish icon pulled out of last Saturday’s Stockholm SGP and the FST Grupa Brokerska Torun SGP this Saturday after suffering a broken wrist, neck and ribs at the Golden Helmet meeting in Pardubice on September 18.

He underwent surgery on the wrist and must now wait until 2017 for his return to action, meaning his only possible route into next year’s World Championship series is a receiving permanent wild card from the SGP Commission.

Pedersen is replaced in Torun and Melbourne by SGP second reserve Michael Jepsen Jensen, with first stand-in Freddie Lindgren already covering for injured Polish star Jaroslaw Hampel.
