We already know the full cast for this year’s European Singles Championships. Thanks to taking places in the top five of the TAURON SEC 2020 series, Robert Lambert, Leon Madsen, Mikkel Michaelsen and Bartosz Smecta were sure to participate. Joining the group is the sixth contender in last year’s competition, Nikki Pedersen, who will replace Gregorij Agota in this year’s series.
The next five places were taken by the players who gave their best in Pardubice, where the SEC Challenge took place. Patrick Doddick won the competition. Apart from the pole, Daniel Bewley and Sergey Chugachev also stood on the podium. Places 4-5 were reserved by European Singles Champion from 2017, Andre Lepidio and Dane, Patrick Hansen, who had to fight in the overtime race with Timo Lahti for promotion to SEC 2021.
After Saturday’s competition in Pardubice, organizers awarded five permanent “wild cards” at SEC 2021. They were awarded to the runners who have competed in the European Singles Championships in recent years: David Pelego, Kai Hockenbeck, Timo Lahti, Vaclav Milik and Piotr Pawliky.
