Holsted welcomed Region Varde at home in an attempt to secure first place in the league.
Region Varde also have something to fight for as we are getting closer to the play-off meetings. They still have a chance to reach second place which will earn them a chance to fight for home advantage in the Grand Final.
However, Holsted were on a mission to secure their first place in the league and continue their great run this season. And so they did. They quickly took control of the meeting and forced Region Varde to use their joker ride early in the meeting. This did not pay off as the rider in question scored 0.
Holsted ended up winning the meeting 48-36, with Nicolai scoring a comfortable paid 14 points.
“A steady night for the team which meant we will now end top of the table before the play-offs. We will to wait and see who we will race against though, depending on other results. For me, I finally had a really good home meeting. I tried a couple of different things which seemed to be working more or less spot on. So I’m very happy!”
Nicolai and Poole should have ridden against Ipswich tonight. However, due to the weather the meeting has been postponed.
