Biography

Danish racer Mikkel Michelsen was the first rider to book their place in the 2022 FIM Speedway Grand Prix series after sealing his second Speedway European Championship last July – adding to his 2019 SEC triumph.

He made his full-time Speedway GP debut in 2020, finishing 14th, but it’s fair to say the opportunity came at short notice. He was called up just two weeks before the season started to replace the injured Martin Smolinski. After sitting out the 2021 series, he’s back having had more preparation time than any other rider – and he’s determined to take full advantage. Michelsen can’t wait to take his second shot at the Speedway GP series.
