Biography

Sweden’s sole FIM Speedway Grand Prix star for 2022, Freddie Lindgren has cemented his position as his country’s top rider since returning to the World Championship full-time in 2017.

The double Swedish champion has stormed to two Speedway GP bronze medals in four seasons to establish himself as a regular world-title contender.

Lindgren finished fifth in the 2021 series – level on points with Maciej Janowski in fourth, but with fewer Speedway GP wins than the Pole.

That was some achievement for a rider who revealed he has been battling long Covid throughout the past two years. The 2015 FIM Speedway World Cup winner will hope to complete his quest for a Speedway GP World Championship with a clean bill of health in 2022.
