COVER STAR CONFIDENT

Wednesday July 20, 2020
PETERBOROUGH captain Ulrich Ostergaard is gunning for another major prize this weekend.

Not content with being the cover star of the bumper Premier League Fours programme, the ‘T Balfe Construction’ Panthers skipper also wants to get his hands on the trophy at the end of the biggest and best staging of the event ever.

Reigning Premier League Riders’ Championship king Ostergaard features in a Peterborough quartet along with Craig Cook, Nikolaj Busk Jakobsen and Tom Perry who enter at the final stage on their home East of England Showground shale.

Ostergaard said: “Winning the PLRC was great, but it would be nice to win some more things with them.

“The Fours is always a really big event, and it’s always one we always look forward to due to being at home.

“We haven’t really had the success we wanted in the past given it’s on our home track, so we definitely want to make up for that a bit this year.

“I think we have a team who can do well and make the most of being at our home track. It’s always difficult, and quite a lot of riders seem to enjoy coming to Peterborough, but we’ll see what we can do.

“Hopefully all four of us can play our part and we can come away with a win, because to lift the trophy in front of our home fans would be amazing.”

A full, in-depth interview with Ostergaard is one of several super features in the official Fours programme.

Other cracking reads include interviews with British champion Danny King, former world champion (and previous Premier League Fours winner) Chris Holder and a welcome from Peterborough supremo Ged Rathbone.

There’s all a run-down on the line-ups from former winner and Showground specialist Olly Allen while Peter Oakes delves back into the past in his ‘Golden Years’ feature.

Throw in all the latest speedway news from across the UK and the all-important race cards for all 72 heats, and you have a bargain at £4.

The racing gets underway at 4pm on Saturday with three Fours semi-finals taking place.

A 16-man individual event then kicks off the Sunday action at noon ahead of the Fours final at 4pm.
