Peter Kildemand Victorious At Danish GP

Posted:

Danish racer Peter Kildemand was delighted to defy a hat-trick of crashes to land a dream KjÌ_rgaard Danish FIM Speedway Grand Prix triumph in Horsens on Saturday.

The SGP first reserve, taking part in his home event as a substitute for injured Polish star Jaroslaw Hampel, sent a packed CASA Arena wild as he topped the rostrum ahead of Slovenian runner-up Matej Zagar and fellow Danish international Michael Jepsen Jensen in third.

World Championship leader Tai Woffinden was excluded from the final after being adjudged to have caused Kildemand‰Ûªs third crash of the night on bend three in the first staging of the race.

The Brit left Horsens having extended his lead over Denmark‰Ûªs Nicki Pedersen from nine points to 13, but the night belonged to the robust Kildemand.

The 26-year-old picked himself up of the deck three times. He was excluded after falling under pressure from Chris Harris in heat 12. PK was then involved in a three-man pile-up with Pedersen and Zagar on the back straight in race 18, which saw all three riders allowed back into the re-run.

He got the benefit of another decision from referee Jim Lawrence in the final. But Kildemand was delighted he and his machines came through such a turbulent meeting with an unforgettable result.

‰ÛÏThis is absolutely perfect." The Odense-born rider said. "It was a tough night. I had to pick myself up off the deck a few times and fair play to the boys in the pits. They got the bikes going again and it was tough work for them.

‰ÛÏThe bikes were pretty damaged every time I went down. So it was an absolutely great job by them.

‰ÛÏWhen I crossed the finish line and I‰Ûªd won it, it was like time stood still for a few seconds. I‰Ûªm just so glad.

‰ÛÏEvery time I go to a GP, I go to win it. Right now, it‰Ûªs a feeling I want to have more often.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs amazing. It was a tough night and it didn‰Ûªt always go the way I hoped, but I‰Ûªm so glad to win it. It was my first time in Horsens. It was an amazing stadium and the track guys did some good work.‰Û
