FIM Speedway Grand Prix duo Leon Madsen and Niels-Kristian Iversen have been named in Denmark’s national side for 2020.

World No.2 Madsen and seven-time Danish champion Iversen raced to fourth place in the Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations Finals in Togliatti last July and will be determined to reach the rostrum next year.

But they will have to see off competition from the likes of SGP reserves Mikkel Michelsen and Anders Thomsen, plus former SGP star Michael Jepsen Jensen.

Rasmus Jensen’s burgeoning form earns him a call-up, along with Mikkel Bech and Frederik Jakobsen, who steps up from the junior ranks following a promising 2019 season, which saw him star for Dackarna in Sweden and impress in the Monster Energy SON as Denmark’s under-21 star.

Triple world champion Nicki Pedersen and Kenneth Bjerre continue to sit out, with Peter Kildemand stepping down for 2020. But they are still eligible to be picked for the Monster Energy SON.

Andreas Lyager, Jonas Jeppesen, Patrick Hansen and Jason Jorgensen are named as standby riders.

A host of promising young guns feature on the under-21 squad list, which includes Mads Hansen, Marcus Birkemose, Jonas Seifert Salk, Tim Sorensen, Matias Nielsen, Emil Portner, Benjamin Basso and Jonas Knudsen.

Emil Breum, Esben Hjerrild, Stian Nielsen and Chris Wænnerstrøm are the standby juniors.
