Lindgren celebrates Scandinavian FIM Speedway Grand Prix success in Malilla
Swedish hero Fredrik Lindgren admits the energy generated by his home fans helped him defy a horror crash to top the Scandinavian FIM Speedway Grand Prix podium in Malilla on Saturday.

Lindgren triumphed in the final ahead of new World Championship leader Leon Madsen, Maciej Janowski and Artem Laguta, with Fast Freddie claiming his first SGP success on home shale since his Gothenburg victory in 2012.

It was a moment to savour for Lindgren as the yellow and blue flags flew high at the G&B Arena.

Despite sustaining a suspected right knee injury in heat six, Lindgren picked up the pace as the meeting progressed and admits the excitement in the stands only inspired him on the bike.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs always great to win, but it‰Ûªs always extra nice to win in front of your home crowd. I could see the atmosphere building because I think the fans saw my form was picking up going into the semi," Lindgren said.

‰ÛÏI think they had big hopes for the final, as I did, and I think everyone just went crazy as I crossed the line.

‰ÛÏI was focused all night, especially with the crowd ‰ÛÒ it helps me and gives me a lot of good energy. I know for a fact they wanted me to win, but I don‰Ûªt feel any extra pressure. I just went out and performed for them. I enjoy it.‰Û

While the Dane stole a march in Malilla, Lindgren insists he‰Ûªs keen to focus on his own scoring rather than his rivals‰Ûª efforts in the final four rounds.

He said: ‰ÛÏI can only focus on myself. I am glad I got the points on the board, but I cannot affect what the opposition are doing. I can only do the best I can. Of course I won tonight, but I need to focus on the next one, hopefully have another good performance and get myself into a good position for the last GP in Torun.‰Û
