BJERRE AND LEMON TO RIDE FOR TOM GRAND
Prix star Kenneth Bjerre is the latest big name to be included in the line-up for Tom P. Madsen's Testimonial at King's Lynn next month. And joining the Dane in the event at the Norfolk Arena on Friday, March 20, is Madsen's former Reading team-mate, Mark Lemon.
The inclusion of Bjerre and Lemon will certainly add to the quality of what is already an exciting looking line-up. Riders like Niels Kristian Iversen, Shane Parker, Travis McGowan, Ulrich Ostergaard, to name but a few, have already pledged their backing for the Berwick asset's big night.
Madsen spoke on the latest two names to be added to the field. He said: "I have known Kenneth for a few years now as I was lucky enough to ride with him at Belle Vue in 2006. "We also see a lot of each other away from the speedway track as we normally do motocross together in the winter. "As for Mark, I got to know him quite well from our time together at Reading last season.
"He's a good bloke and a great man to have in your team. I was his race partner for a while with the Racers and I felt we always rode well when paired together. "I'm really pleased to have both Kenneth and Mark onboard for my big night.
"Everything is shaping up nicely for the event and the line-up is very nearly complete. "I'll be busy over the next few weeks putting the finishing touches to everything and also doing some advertising and promoting for the meeting. "This includes attending the Speedway and Grasstrack Show next Sunday (February 22) at The Sports Connexion, Ryton-on-Dunsmore, Nr Coventry. "I'll have the Testimonial race bibs on display, plus also a range of merchandise available to buy."
