Nicki Pedersen to ride at Magnus Karlsson's testimonial


Leicester Lions will begin the new season with a testimonial meeting for Magnus Karlsson to recognise his 10 years of service to British speedway.

Three-time world champion Nicki Pedersen has already been confirmed for the Beaumont Park meeting on 17 March.

Pedersen said: "I've known Magnus and his brothers for so many years and we ride together in the Swedish League.

"It's nice to help and it also helps me get as many meetings as possible before the first Grand Prix."
