Danish Speedway Duo Called Up For Vojens
Former Nordic FIM Speedway Grand Prix winner Michael Jepsen Jensen and fellow Dane Mikkel Bech Jensen have been handed dream call-ups for this year‰Ûªs Nordic SGP at Vojens on September 13.

SGP series first reserve Jepsen Jensen comes into the event in place of Australian rider Darcy Ward, who remains suspended by the FIM. MJJ stormed to victory at Vojens as a wild card in 2012 and will be determined to make it back-to-back wins at the club where he made his 500cc league racing debut.

Bech Jensen was due to serve as first reserve in the meeting, but has been promoted into the starting 16 by the FIM after Danish champion Niels-Kristian Iversen was forced to withdraw due to knee ligament damage. He dons the No.20 race jacket.

This switch sees second reserve Nicolaj Busk Jakobsen moved into the No.17 first-reserve race jacket, while FIM Speedway Under-21 World Championship finalist Lasse Bjerre ‰ÛÒ younger brother of SGP regular Kenneth ‰ÛÒ comes in as second stand-in at No.18.

They will take to the track if any of the main 16 riders are forced to miss a heat due to injury, illness, a starting offence or other reasons.

Jepsen Jensen and Bech Jensen join triple world champion Nicki Pedersen, Kenneth Bjerre and wild card Peter Kildemand in flying the home flag at the Vojens Speedway Center.
