Latvian SGP (August 17, 2013)
Latvia's first-ever Speedway GP rider, Andzejs Lebedevs steps into the World Championship line-up for the first time after receiving a permanent wild card from the SGP Commission. The Daugavpils-born racer won the 2017 Speedway European Championship, before taking his country to new heights by leading them into the 2021 FIM Speedway of Nations Final in Manchester. After reaching the 2022 FIM Torun Speedway GP semi-finals as a substitute rider, Lebedevs earned the first substitute spot for 2023, scoring 31 points from five rounds. Now he bids to give Latvian fans a season they will never forget in 2024.
