08 / 05 / 2019, 22:28

Former world champion Chris Holder has been drafted into Australia’s Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations side in Manchester this Saturday after Jason Doyle withdrew due to injury.

Doyle suffered a broken rib and punctured lung when he crashed in Torun last Sunday and won’t be fit in time for Race Off 2 as the Roos take on Great Britain, Denmark, Latvia, USA, France and Finland.

With Holder named in the five-man squad, he gets the nod to replace Doyle and will serve as captain as he partners former World Under-21 champion Max Fricke and Aussie Under-21 champion Jaimon Lidsey.

It will be Holder’s first appearance in the Monster Energy SON after he was overlooked for the 2018 competition.

But the Sydneysider is one of the sport’s team-riding specialists, forging a near-telepathic understanding with Darcy Ward in their time racing for clubs like Poole and Torun together.
