European champion Mikkel Michelsen has been confirmed as captain of Danish Speedwayligaen side Slangerup for 2024.
Michelsen is back to spearhead the Speedwayligaen’s most easterly club once again. He will also be racing for Polish side Czestochowa, as well as competing in the FIM Speedway Grand Prix series and defending his Speedway European Championship crown.
Slangerup is where Michelsen’s speedway career started, and he will be bidding to help the club improve on its 2023 bronze medal.
Team leader Patrick Hougaard said: “We were incredibly happy with Mikkel's efforts both on and off the track last season. Therefore, we think it's only natural that Mikkel has the title of captain again for the season.
“In our opinion, he gave his all on the track and was good at giving tips to the other riders. We are looking forward to the season and hopefully seeing a Slangerup team on top in 2024.”
