Bikes: Tom P. Madsen Testimonial

TOP BRIT TO RIDE FOR TOM

GRAND Prix star Scott Nicholls will be one of the big names to turn out for Tom P. Madsen's Testimonial at King's Lynn next month.

The Great Britain international joins an ever-expanding cosmopolitan field for the event at the Norfolk Arena on Friday, March 20.

Nicholls has elected to give the British Elite League a miss in 2009, so his appearance for Madsen's big night will be one of the few chances supporters will get to see the British skipper on these shores this year.

The 30-year-old will ride in league action in both Sweden and Poland this season and has vowed to use the resulting extra spare time to fully-focus on the World Championship Grand Prix series.

Madsen was obviously delighted to be able to include the popular Brit for his big night. He said: "Things have been going extremely well for my meeting anyway, but to be able to include Scott is a big boost and is really the icing on the cake.

"He's the British number one, skipper of his country and also one of the top riders in the world. They don't come much bigger than Scott.

"It's a great honour to have him on board."
