Danish racer Peter Kildemand has been called up for the Mitas Czech Republic FIM Speedway Grand Prix in Prague this Saturday.
PK stands in for fellow Odense-born ace Nicki Pedersen, with the triple world champion still feeling the effects of neck injuries suffered in a Danish Speedway League meeting at Holsted on May 24.
Kildemand dons his No.25 race jacket for a second straight SGP round.
Team Pedersen plan to release more information about the 40-year-old’s injuries once he has sought advice from specialists.
A statement on his official Facebook page confirmed: “After several medical examinations, Nicki unfortunately has to withdraw from the SGP in Prague on Saturday.
“We will inform more about the injury as soon as the final information is ready from the specialists.
“First reserve Peter Kildemand takes Nicki's place in Saturday’s SGP and we give our best wishes to the two Danes in Prague.”
Everyone at SpeedwayGP.com wishes Nicki a speedy recovery.
