Denmark’s Michael Palm Toft is 31 and has been riding regularly in Great Britain for 11 seasons, winning this year’s league championship with the Peterborough Panthers. Despite the efficient and effective leadership, he did not stand a chance in Poland.

For the Odense-born motorcyclist, a foreign launch is nothing new. Since 2011 he has attended a lot of meetings in Great Britain, such as Scunthorpe Scorpions, King’s Lynn Stars, Plymouth Devils, Belle Vue Aces, Somerset Rebels, Leicester Lions, Redcar Bears and Peterborough Panthers. With the latter team, he won the Premier League in 2021.
Interestingly, the lack of debut in Poland is not a Danish initiative. The Polish league has always been my main goal, but I didn’t get an offer that would give me a chance to present myself in Poland. However, I believe that through my hard work, I will finally get such an opportunity. The Polish tracks are longer and wider than the British ones, they allow you to fight, and that is where I feel best, so I can show my good side,” Michael Palm Toft said in an interview with WP SportoweFakty.
– I did not have the opportunity to make my debut in Poland and I did not sign a contract to start with any Polish club. There was a topic about working with a Polish manager a few years ago, but it didn’t work out and I didn’t sign anything with him, after which I didn’t get any comments from him – explained Palm Toft.

In the recent transfer window, the Dane also did not sign a contract in Poland, but he hopes that will change during the season. – I’m ready to sign the contract when I get a serious offer. I am ready in terms of equipment, because I have engines from Peter Jones, but of course if I get a contract in Poland, I will have to invest more in equipment to win races in your country – confirmed.
Last season, Michael Palm Toft won the Premier League for the first time in his career. Our experience was definitely a key element, and it affected the good atmosphere in the team. I had a goal for this season to start and finish first and I’m glad I did, acknowledging the athlete who finished the season with an average of 2,000 points, scored 204 points and 24 bonuses in 114 qualifiers and led the England Champions.
This highway racer is known for his efficient remote riding. – I always had problems in the beginning – even when I was driving in the 80cc class, but I’ve worked a lot on it in the last few years and then started to do a lot better. When I start a race I’m always determined to win – even if I come off the bar worse and that’s key for me – he made an assessment.
Michael Palm Toft has goals for 2022. – I want to win two leagues in Great Britain again, against Peterborough Panthers and Plymouth Devils (the club works in the back of the Premier League – editor) and improve my individual results. I would also like to debut in Poland, so if I had the opportunity, I would definitely use it – summed up the Dane.
