Kildemand Gets Cardiff Call

Triple world champion Nicki Pedersen has officially withdrawn from the Adrian Flux British SGP, with Peter Kildemand replacing him at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on July 22.

Pedersen remains sidelined as he waits to undergo a further scan on the neck injuries he suffered in a Danish league crash at Holsted in May.

SGP first reserve Kildemand steps into the field for the fourth straight round, hoping to build on the 12 points he has scored in three appearances, which leaves him 16th overall in the World Championship.

He reached the Cardiff final in 2015, finishing third behind compatriot Niels-Kristian Iversen and Chris Holder.
