Swedish star Freddie Lindgren is delighted to be shaking off the race-rust that cost him a Mitas Czech SGP semi-final spot on Saturday.

Fast Freddie exited the Prague meeting on six points as he made his racing comeback, two weeks after struggling to five in Daugavpils on May 27 – just days after sustaining knee ligament damage at Wolverhampton on May 22.

I have a week or so before the next round and if I can get a good feeling, I’ll come into Horsens with a lot more confidence.

But Lindgren has made a winning return to league action in recent days, scoring 10 paid 11 points for Polish club Rybnik on Sunday, a 15-point maximum at Wolves on Monday and 14 paid 15 from six rides for Swedish side Dackarna on Tuesday.

The Andorra-based racer is keen to keep building momentum ahead of the Kjærgaard Danish SGP in Horsens on June 24, but admits he lacked race-sharpness going into the Prague event.

He said: “I just want to score points for my teams. I have a week or so before the next round and if I can get a good feeling, I’ll come into Horsens with a lot more confidence.

“In Prague, I was in the wrong place at the wrong time a couple of times. With not having ridden for two weeks beforehand, I was a little bit race-rusty.

“I’m the kind of guy who likes to race a lot to be fresh in the head and know what to do on the track. I’m very pleased I at least got a win in my last one.

“I’m still not 100 percent after my knee injury, but I’m not far off. I had one moment where I twisted the knee in one heat when I was last, which wasn’t good. But I wouldn’t put my result down to that. It was more about finding the setup. Maybe I’m not 100 percent race-fit, though.”
