Aussies set to take on the World at Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations this weekend
This weekend (20-21 July) will see our very own Australian Speedway team, affectionately known as the ‰Û÷Roos‰Ûª taking on the world‰Ûªs best in the finals of the 2019 Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations (SoN), held at the Anatoly Stepanov Stadium in Tolyatti in Western Russia.

The green and gold team will feature 2017 FIM Speedway World Champion in Jason Doyle, 2016 World Under-21 champion Max Fricke and two times Australian Under 21 Champion Jaimon Lidsey.

It‰Ûªs been sixteen years since the Aussies have tasted glory in the FIM Speedway of Nations, with Jason Crump, Leigh Adams, Jason Lyons, Todd Wiltshire and Ryan Sullivan.

On paper, Australia‰Ûªs main rivals will likely be Great Britain, who beat the Australians last time out in the 2019 SoN Race Off 2 at the National Speedway Stadium in Manchester by four points.

‰ÛÏI think it‰Ûªs fantastic what our Australian Speedway riders have done in this year's Speedway of Nations,‰Û

Eight times FIM Speedway World Championship race winner, Leigh Adams said; "Max (Fricke) is really hitting form right now, which is a huge plus for the team," he said.

The ten times Australian Speedway Champion also noted the unique lack of banking at the Russian track due to the stadium hosting ice racing there during the winter: "It's going to be a big advantage for the gaters to get out and make some clean starts and get out in front. That is what Max has been doing. He has been flying in the last four weeks," concluded Adams.

To date, the Australian Speedway team have won the FIM's premier Speedway Teams Championship four times, in 1976, 1999, 2001 and 2002.

To watch the action unfold this weekend, tune into Fox Sports ‰ÛÒ check local guides for details.
