Danes dominate

06/09/10 - 14:47

Denmark, under the calm guidance of one of the best team managers in the business, Jan Staechmann, ultimately proved convincing winners of the 2010 FIM Under 21 Speedway Team Championship. In an incident packed meeting, they took control in  Heat 2 when star man Rene Bach won the first of what was to be a five ride perfect score. The lead was never to be surrendered with strong support from Patrick Hougaard and indeed the whole of the Danish squad.

The early challenge came from title holders, Poland but a succession of exclusions due to tape offences and falls was to prove very costly in the final outcome.

The Swedish Team with Dennis Andersson leading the way then put in a serious challenge for the top honour managing to reduce the Danes lead to only 2 points by the end of heat 17, however a failure to maintain consistency in the late stages saw the challenge fall away.

Great Britain  always struggling after Grand Prix rider Tai Woffinden was forced to withdraw through injury will be disappointed but should not be downhearted with a competent display from a very inexperienced side. Lewis Bridger leading from the front with a creditable 11 point haul.
