Stefan Nielsen (speedway rider) Wikipedia
Stefan Leeder Nielsen (born 31 October 1994) is a British speedway rider.
Nielsen has a British mother and Danish father, and was born in Esbjerg, Denmark. He first rode speedway at the age of four and a half in Denmark and went on to ride for Grindsted in the 80cc class. In 2010 he rode for Outrup in the Danish second division.
He began his career in British speedway in 2011 with the Scunthorpe/Sheffield National League team, after attending a training school run by David Howe at Scunthorpe, winning the league championship with them that season. In 2012 he signed for Mildenhall Fen Tigers, and was part of the team that won the National League championship, National League Trophy, Knockout Cup, and Four-team Championship. Also that year he won the British Under-19 Championship, a title that he retained in 2013, only the second rider to achieve that feat. He also rode in fourteen matches for Premier League Ipswich Witches. In 2013 he stayed with the Fen Tigers and rode in the Premier League with Somerset Rebels, averaging close to five points but losing his place towards the end of the season. In 2014 he signed for Coventry Storm in the National League, whilst in the draft for Elite League reserves for 2014, Nielsen was picked by Belle Vue Aces.
