Australia reach Monster Energy FIM Speedway World Cup Final

Posted:

Australian skipper Chris Holder insists his side have the class to land their first world championship since 2002 after they triumphed in Monster Energy FIM Speedway World Cup Event 2 at British track King‰Ûªs Lynn on Monday.

The Roos were victorious on 47 points to see off a brave Team Great Britain challenge and book their place alongside hosts Denmark and Event 1 winners Sweden in Saturday‰Ûªs Monster Energy SWC Final at legendary Danish track Vojens.

The Lions finished second on 43 to earn the consolation prize of a berth in Thursday‰Ûªs Race Off, which also takes place at Vojens. They are joined by the USA, who were third on 22. Event 1 runners-up Poland and Russia complete the line-up.

Australia earned their spot with a rock-solid team performance as Jason Doyle led the charge on 13, while debutant Nick Morris tallied a terrific 12. Troy Batchelor joined Holder on 11 points.

Despite the men from Down Under facing a stiff Scandinavian test in the Final, Holder is certain his Roos have what it takes to end their 13-year wait for team speedway‰Ûªs biggest prize.

"We haven‰Ûªt won for a little while, so we are due one hopefully. If we go there and do something on Saturday, we‰Ûªll be pretty happy," Holder said.

‰ÛÏWe have the team to do it ‰ÛÒ it comes down to what happens on the day. We have to make it happen. Vojens is a tricky track. It can be slick, but there can also be a lot of dirt on it.

‰ÛÏWe have nothing to lose. We‰Ûªre there, so let‰Ûªs go for it and see what we can do.

"I think the Danes have done a fair few laps there over the years. But I‰Ûªve been there a lot of times and Troy has raced a couple of meetings there.

‰ÛÏI don‰Ûªt think Nick has, but we have Friday to practice and it depends who turns up on the Saturday. If we can do something great on Saturday, it will be special for all of us.‰Û
