It was not a walk in the park for Poole PIrates as they hosted King’s Lynn yesterday for the Premiership Shield.
It was the second leg of the Premiership Shield and Poole had home advantage. King’s Lynn looked very much up for the task of causing some trouble for Poole.
All the way through they were even and many heats ended 3-3 on points. However, in the end King’s Lynn won the last heat 5-1 which gave them the win. But despite their brave fight, it was not enough to win back the 10-point loss they had on their turf. This meant that Poole won the Premiership Shield and thereby the first trophy of the year.
Nicolai started off with two heat wins, and ended on 7 points for his four heats.
“Obviously nobody wants to loose the first home meeting, but we won overall which was the main thing today. I started out good, but I’m very disappointed about my last ride where I got passed because I was trying to team ride, but it is what it is.”
Nicolai is on track tonight in Denmark in home birth town Outrup, to take part in the testimonial for fellow Danish rider Mads Korneliussen.
