Lejonen were up against Smederna yesterday, away from home, to fight for another win and a bonuspoint.
It looked like a tough away meeting against Smederna, where Lejonen are fighting to secure the last play-off spot in the league. However, Lejonen was up for the challenge and early in the meeting they started to take control of the meeting.
Even though the meeting looked very even with a small lead for Lejonen along the way, they looked to be in control. Eventually they won the meeting by 42-48, which also secured them a bonuspoint. Nicolai scored 3 points in three rides.
“A very very important win for the team in the race for play-off spots over last years champions, Eskilstuna. For me it wasn’t the best day! My starts were spot on, but got pushed around a bit as well as riding too defensive in the last heat, after making a change to the bike. But we know what to do and what not to do next time. On to the next one!”
Next up for Nicolai is tonight, where he and Holsted can secure a place in this year’s final, by beating Region Varde at home.
