05 / 11 / 2019, 11:37

Former FIM Speedway Grand Prix regular Bjarne Pedersen has announced 2020 will be his final season on the shale.

The two-time FIM Speedway World Cup winner finished sixth in the 2005 World Championship.

He raced in 71 SGP rounds, picking up one victory – topping the European SGP podium in Wroclaw in 2004.

He spent the vast majority of his Danish Speedway League career with local club Holstebro, but will see out his final season with Esbjerg, where he is set to be team captain and stage his Final Lap farewell meeting in September. Pedersen will also skipper Opole in the Polish Second Division.

The 41-year-old, who won three Elite League titles with the Poole Pirates in Britain, admits hanging up his kevlars was far from easy.

He said: “Thoughts about ending my career have been on my mind for a couple of years. Speedway is my life and therefore it is and has been a very difficult decision to stop. I would like to end my career in style. I believe it will be possible this way.”
