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
